Ansvar Community Grants Open
4 August 2015 at 12:15 pm

Not for Profit Insurance provider, Ansvar has announced grant applications are open for their 2016 annual Community Education Program (CEP) worth up to $50,000 each.

Through the CEP grants, Ansvar said it supports sustainable programs for Australians under the age of 25, promoting ongoing education, skills training and programs making a significant difference to the lives of the participants.

The program offers grants of up to $50,000 each for projects that fall into two categories – Empowerment and Education, programs which provide opportunities to develop positive values that lead to healthy lifestyle choices and a positive contribution to our community, and Outreach and Support, programs that support youths who are at risk or are already experiencing difficulties through rehabilitation and/or skills training.  

This year Ansvar said it is simplifying the application process by allowing Not for Profit to complete their submissions online.

To date, Ansvar has donated over $10 million dollars to these programs in the last two decades.

“There are so many worthy organisations across Australia doing amazing work for our young people. Funding is becoming more and more of a challenge and we are very proud of our Community Education Program and the meaningful contribution we are able to make to these not-for-profit organisations,” CEO Ansvar, Warren Hutcheon said.

“Ansvar is committed to our grants program and we encourage all organisations with outstanding youth programs to apply for a 2016 CEP Grant. We look forward to receiving applications and assisting organisations in their mission to help positively impact the lives of Australian youth and the community.”

The 2015 CEP Grant recipients included 20th Man Youth Fund, Fighting Chance, Cobram & District Specialist School, Everyday CareSouth, Second Chances SA, The Shepherd Centre and Operation Stitches, have all been able to offer programs and change the lives of many deserving youths across the country.

Applications for the Ansvar CEP Grants will close at 5.00pm on Friday, 4 September 2015.  

Ansvar said it will notify all organisations of the outcome of their application on or before Friday, 11 December 2015. Successful applicants will be notified by phone by Friday 11 December 2015 with full information about their CEP Grant. To apply online or to find out more, visit
