Equity Trust Grants Focus on Aged Care
18 June 2013 at 9:41 am
The Equity Trustees Grant rounds opened this week with $160,000 worth of funding available for Not for Profit organisations.
The primary grant focus this year is on organisations with an aged care purpose but organisations can also apply for General Interest Trust grants for projects with a general charitable focus.
Equity Trustees Head of Philanthropy Tabitha Lovett said external donations were also accepted through the program.
“Additional donations are welcomed from the general public and this is an effective way for people to support charities across Australia,” she said.
“Individuals, families and companies can also establish their own stand alone charitable sub-fund with the EQT Foundation.”
The EQT Foundation was established as a public ancillary fund by Equity Trustees Limited in 2001 and has grown through additional donations to support the general benefit of charity.
Equity Trustees currently manages more than 200 charitable trusts with around $450 million in funds under management.
Expressions of interest applications close on July 15.
Successful applicants will be notified by the end of July and will be required to submit a full application.
Grants will be announced in November.
To be eligible for grants, applicants require ATO Charity Tax Concession endorsement.
Applicants to the EQT Foundation must also be endorsed as a deductible gift recipient.
