Thursday, 9th January 2014 at 9:51 am

Not for Profits can now apply for capacity building grants worth up to $100,000 through the Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Fund.

The grants on offer are between $25,000 and $100,000 under the Capacity Building Stream of the Poverty and Disadvantage Program.

According to the Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Fund, the Capacity Building Stream of the Poverty and Disadvantage program is based on a definition and understanding of capacity building that emphasises organisational effectiveness and impact, and seeks to enhance grant recipient organisations’ ability to achieve their missions.

“Grants for capacity building will be made to community-based and Not for Profit organisations that are working with young people aged from 12 to 23 years living in or transitioning out of out-of-home care,” the Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Fund said.

Successful recipients can receive their grant in one or two instalments and may be expended over two years.

The eligibility criteria is:

  • Not for Profit and community-based organisations located and headquartered in Australia are eligible to apply;

  • Applicants must be working in the area of this program’s single focus area;

  • Applicants must have annual revenue of less than $4 million;

  • Applicants may be in current funding with The Myer Foundation and Sidney Myer Fund however this is not a requirement. Nor does it exclude applicants from eligibility;

  • Recipients of grants from the Sidney Myer Fund or The Myer Foundation received prior to July 1, 2012 must have acquitted the grant to be eligible to apply.

Applications close January 30. For more information, click here.
