Community Grants

As a mutual organisation we don’t have shareholders so any profit we make is used for your benefit, like by providing our members with the chance to apply for Community Grants.

Our Community Grants lets you apply online for a financial grant so that you can organise Community Volunteer and Fun Family activities that are meaningful to you and your community.

Community Volunteer grants offer engaging hands-on volunteer opportunities to help make a positive impact in their local communities.

Fun Family grants offer complimentary admissions and / or unique opportunities for members and their families to experience a variety of activities together. Whether you make a day trip to the zoo or watch a sporting event, our grant will help you plan an exciting outing so you can make lasting memories with your loved ones.

Please ensure you have reviewed and adhere to the regulations, guidelines and safety measures put in place by your local government and health officials due to COVID-19 including social distancing measures and the maximum allowed number of attendees. For Fun Family activities, it is your responsibility to review the venue policy regarding COVID-19 protocols, (including venue entry requirements) and ensure you include the required information in your application for approval. The Grants Team reserves the right to decline processing an application if information is incomplete and/or isn’t consistent with grant guidelines.
