Have a passion for social justice?
The Baker’s Dozen Social Justice Fund makes grants to organisations in Melbourne’s inner north for initiatives and projects which advance social justice.
In keeping with Christopher Baker and Kerri Hall’s intent when they kick-started the Fund, the Inner North Community Foundation is committed to bringing community voice into how the Fund works, and we’re inviting local people to get involved.
At the launch in late 2021, the first grant recipients were announced who each received $2,500-$5,000:
- Fitzroy Learning Network, Youth Engagement Project
- Brunswick Neighbourhood House, Access and Denial: Showing Inclusive Art
- Jika Jika Community Centre, The Sitting Garden
- Victoria University, A Fight For Survival: Northlands Returns to Northlands
- Bridge Darebin, Connecting through ceramics- An allyship initiative for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women
- Federation of Greek Elderly Citizen Clubs, Entertaining seniors – Greek Women’s Friendly Society Preston
The Community Advisory Panel will help determine how funds in 2022/23 will be granted in line with the intent of the fund.
If you or someone you know is interested in contributing 40-60 hours per year, please express interest here. The Community Advisory Panel is a sub-group of the Inner North Community Foundation Grants Committee, and provides advice and recommendations to the Foundation board.
Support is available to remove barriers to volunteering, and people of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to get involved.
Expressions of interest close Sunday July 17th. Get involved here.
