About
Community
Grants

In 2014, we are pleased to be awarding $2 million in individual grants of up to $10,000 to youth-focused community organisations across Australia.

Since 1917 our Staff Community Fund has been supporting the health and wellbeing of Australian children. Thanks to the generosity of our staff who donate to the Staff Community Fund, we are able to assist thousands of Aussie kids each year.

In 2013 we were proud to support more than 230 community organisations through our Community Grants Program, including Glebe PCYC. Glebe PCYC do inspirational work with Australian youth. Watch the video to learn more.

  2. Each Committee has a specific allocation of funds to award in its state.

  3. Each Committee will look at the aims of your program, the number of children or youth that benefit from the program, and its community benefits.
