Grants Rounds in 2016

Open now – Community Building Small Grants Round 2016

In 2016 we are proud to again be partnering with the Scanlon Foundation and Community Hubs Australia with a small grants round (of to $5,000)  for small community organisations (turnover less than $500,000) who work with culturally and linguistically diverse communities in the inner north of Melbourne – Darebin, Yarra and Moreland.   These grants are aimed at helping with operating or capacity building costs (as opposed to program costs.)

We are able to fund items such as office equipment and direct aid, IT support including website development and software improvement, or professional development opportunities such as conference registration, consultancy or financial counselling.

Applications close on Friday 26 February 2016.

Pathways to Employment Grants Round – opening March 2016.

The Inner North Community Foundation funds employment type projects that help disadvantaged local people develop the necessary work and life skills to help them gain confidence in seeking jobs. To see the types of projects we’ve funded in the past, see our Grant Recipients page.

To be eligible for a grant your organisation must have tax charitable status, must be providing programs supporting pathways to employment, and will be based in (or providing services to) the inner north of Melbourne – in the municipalities of Darebin, Yarra and Moreland. Detailed information will be launched in late March.
