This Foundation supports charities working on reducing long-term unemployment of youth and assisting families at risk of, or experiencing, family violence. The Foundation would like to invest in social enterprises that provide new and sustainable solutions for entrenched family welfare problems. The Foundation provides a $150,000 annual grant for larger projects and a $35,000 annual grant for a period of three years to smaller projects.
Eligible candidates will have both DGR Item 1 and TCC status. Applications from high-need areas with a strong volunteer component will be given preference. Projects will be judged not only on immediate key performance indicators and outputs, but also on long-term goals. Successful applications will include at least two to five far-reaching community well-being outcomes – for example
- Improved access to education/training/employment
- Improved housing stock availability/affordability
- Reduced/prevented family/workplace violence
- Improved health and wellbeing
- Promotion/dissemination of best practice/new knowledge
