Grants Target People, the Planet and Animals
Thursday, 17th May 2018 at 1:43 pm

Organisations delivering tangible benefits for people, the planet, and animals are being invited to apply for a share of $300,000 in grant funding.

Australian Ethical has opened its community grants program for 2018, with grants of $10,000 and $20,000 available for charities and not-for-profit social enterprises that contribute to humanitarian, environmental and animal welfare efforts in Australia and abroad.

Each year, the company donates up to 10 per cent of its after-tax profits to charitable organisations and social impact initiatives through the Australian Ethical Foundation.

Australian Ethical Investment managing director Phil Vernon said they believed business “could and should” make a positive impact on the world.

“That’s why we support grassroots efforts that make the world a better place,” Vernon said.

“Our continued growth means we have more money available for grants this year than ever before.”

Since the grants program began in 2000, Australian Ethical has donated almost $2.5 million to organisations both locally and internationally.

Vernon said: “We’re so proud of the work our grant recipients are doing and so pleased to support them. We’re looking forward to partnering with more organisations this year, to making a positive impact.”

Applications are open until 7 June, 5pm AEST, with winners announced on 27 August.
