Australian Ethical Community Grants
Wednesday, 27th March 2013 at 4:53 pm

Superannuation company, Australian Ethical, is has launched its Community Grants program which will see over $100,000 made available to Australian Not for Profit organisations and community projects.

Open to charitable and benevolent organisations with current projects requiring funding, the Community Grants program is an opportunity for organisations working at the forefront of sustainability, and social justice sector, according to Australian Ethical’s Paul Smith.

“The last few years have seen almost 1,000 applications and this year Australian Ethical hopes to set a new record for applications,” Smith said.

“We’ve been working with the Not for Profit sector for over a decade and we know that for many organisations obtaining funds is more challenging than it has ever been.”

Australian Ethical donates a reported 10 per cent of its annual profit every year through the grants program which is said to be one of the highest percentages in corporate giving in Australia.

“Since the inception of the program 12 years ago, over $1.3 million in funding has been provided to community organisations that are making a real difference,” Smith said.

Grants are awarded to organisations who are conducting activities that deliver impactful, tangible outcomes and are in-line with the Australian Ethical Charter.

Previous grant recipients include the Australian Afghan Hassanian Youth Association, Bikes for Humanity, The Cancer Support Group, Carpets for Communities, Communities Work, Gunawirra, The Kokoda Track Foundation, Room to Read and the Royal Guide Dogs.

Applications for the grants are open for three months on the April 1 and can be made online at http://www.australianethical.com.au/community.

 “We see the Community Grants program as an important complementary extension of our day-to-day business,” Smith said.

“We invest in great listed organisations that are positively impacting society and the planet in the fields of technology, healthcare, education and energy and we proud to be able to extend that investment to visionary organisations that are working towards an ethical, sustainable future.”
