Media Foundation Grants for Youth Disadvantage Open
Thursday, 30th October 2014 at 10:49 am

A Foundation representing Australia’s media, marketing and advertising industry, UN LTD, is calling on charities dedicated to undoing youth disadvantage to submit proposals for funding support in 2015.

UN LTD (pronounced ‘unlimited’) says it channels funding and resources from the media, marketing and advertising sector to support organisations providing critical services to young people in need.

In 2014 UN LTD supported over 21 charity partners helping them to build scale, seek sustainability in funding and improve their operational efficiency.

UN LTD General Manager Carol Morris said that the industry movement against the unacceptable issue of youth disadvantage was fast gaining momentum not only in terms of financial growth but with establishing workplace giving programs within companies in the industry and providing corporate mentoring support.

“This year we have 40 of Australia’s top media companies supporting our foundation with cash funding which enables us to expand our charity portfolio to impact more young lives in need across Australia,” Morris said.

UN LTD says it aims to maintain a balanced portfolio of beneficiaries each year, across the spectrum of youth needs, inviting applications from organisations that:

  •          Aim to improve and protect the quality of life for disadvantaged or underprivileged young people.
  •          Provide critical services to young people suffering from the consequences of abuse, trauma, neglect or illness related disadvantage and injustice.
  •          Lack the profile and ability to generate sufficient and independent funding.

Morris said that  UN LTD looks favourably upon specific projects that receive minimal or no Government funding.  

Grant applications are now open. Application guidelines and forms can be found at: http://unltd.org.au/about-us/charity-partners/

Applications close at 5pm 12 December 2014.
