ING Foundation Looks to Fund ‘Bold’ Ideas
Wednesday, 30th January 2013 at 9:26 am

The ING Foundation is now seeking applications for charitable grants of up to $25,000 that reflect bold and different ideas.

Three grants are available to Not for Profit organisations which deliver new and different programs or services to help young people realise their potential.

ING DIRECT CEO, Vaughn Richtor said, “The way the social issue is defined may be new or different or it might be unique in its execution, but we are keen to back some bold new ideas.

”I’m excited to see how we can support the successful applicants to achieve long term benefits for young people facing challenges in our community,” Richtor said.

Applications must meet all of the selection criteria to be considered for an ING Foundation grant:

  • Must be registered with the Australian Taxation Office as an approved charity (Deductible Gift Recipient covered by item 1 of the table in section 30-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997)
  • Must be innovative in the way it delivers programs/services to young people in need;
  • Must address at least one of the below focus areas:
    – Youth Disadvantage
    – Education
    – Youth Health and Mental Health
  • Must help young people to ‘realise their potential’

The ING Foundation was established in 1978 with the aim to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged Australians. As well as its grants program, the ING Foundation is partnered with four charitable organisations in Australia – Cerebral Palsy Alliance, National Centre of Indigenous Excellence, School for Social Entrepreneurs and United Way. The Foundation provides these charities with financial assistance as well as employee fundraising and volunteering time.

To apply, go to the ING Foundation website. Applications close March 1, 2013.
