St.George Foundation’s NFP Funding Round
Tuesday, 16th August 2016 at 11:13 am

St.George Foundation is calling on community organisations focused on the future of disadvantaged children to apply for its latest round of grant funding of up to $50,000 each.

$100 bills stacked up RS

The foundation said grants would be awarded to smaller community organisations that work to provide a brighter future for socially, economically or physically disadvantaged children.

“Since its establishment by St.George Bank in 1990, the St.George Foundation has partnered with more than 800 organisations across Australia to grant more than $25 million to improve the lives of Australian children,” head of St.George Foundation Vanessa Barry said.

“From providing educational programs to help youth at risk, to implementing support programs to help children who are diagnosed by rare diseases, these are just some of the types of programs St.George Foundation supports.

“Last grant round St.George Foundation awarded a total of $400,000 in funding to a variety of organisations, including Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, a support organisation for children affected by Sanfilippo Syndrome.”

Megan Donnell, founder of Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation said: “We were overwhelmed to receive a $42,500 grant from St.George Foundation, allowing us to fund our Identify, Inform and Involve project.

“There is currently no treatment or cure available to children diagnosed with Sanfilippo syndrome. Thanks to the funds from St.George Foundation, we are a step closer in progressing clinical research into finding an effective treatment to combat this devastating disease.”

To be eligible for funding, an organisation must:

  • focus its efforts on Australian children under the age of 18 years
  • be located in NSW, ACT, QLD or WA
  • have a gross annual revenue of less than $3 million
  • receive less than 40 per cent of its income from recurrent state, federal or local government funding
  • be endorsed as a deductible gift recipient (but not another ancillary fund).  

Applications are open now until 30 September 2016.
