Money for Happy Little Vegemites
20 March 2003 at 12:03 pm

As part of Vegemite’s 80th birthday celebrations in 2003 the Kraft Food Company has established the Happy Little Vegemite Foundation as an opportunity to give something back to the Australian community that has supported the brand all these years.

The Foundation will provide up to 80 grants, each of $2,000 to Not for Profit organisations who are working in their community to create a healthy, happy, fun and safe future for people under the age of 18.

Australian NFP’s must be organised exclusively for social welfare, pleasure, recreation or any other purpose except profit; and do not receive corporate sponsorship or government funding in excess of $10,000 annually (in cash or
kind). However, schools, pre-schools and kindergartens are eligible to apply.

There are five grant categories representing the key focus areas, which the Foundation wishes to promote amongst people under the age of 18. They are Art , Education, Environment, Sport and Recreation, and Safety.

All applications must relate to a proposal to carry out a project, activity or initiative relating to the Grant Categories, which will benefit, and is directed towards, people under the age of 18.

Examples of activities:
1. Upgrading of sports equipment
2. New playground, computer, safety equipment
3. Musical instruments
4. Books, painting material

Applications open on 3 March 2003 and close on 30 May 2003. Grant Recipients will be announced on September 2003.
