Giving Circle Opens Up $50K Welfare Grant
10 July 2014 at 10:00 am
A grant of $50,000 is on offer for a Queensland charity that provides social welfare support to people who are most disadvantaged.
The grant is part of the inaugural Women & Change grant round for 2014. Women & Change is a Giving Circle initiated by a group of Brisbane women in late 2013, who say they are “passionate about helping people and causes in the greatest need”.
According to the group, each year, Women & Change will call for applications in July with one grant awarded in November, according to a staged application and assessment process, with the final decision being made by vote of Women & Change members.
“Preference will be given to applicants whose projects will produce positive social outcomes to Queenslanders living in disadvantage; are well defined, and; include a clear community need, strategies, budget, project outcomes and details of how you will evaluate your project’s successful implementation and outcomes,” Women & Change said.
Expressions of Interest close at 5pm on August 1 with short-listed applicants invited to submit a full proposal by September 26, 2014.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by August 29.
