Courier-Mail Children’s Fund established by Queensland Newspapers staff as a way to give back to the community. One of the initial campaigns of the Fund over 100 years ago was the annual ‘Santa’s Toy Sack’ drive which gathered toys in the lead up to Christmas for children in Queensland hospitals.
Over the years the Courier-Mail Children’s Fund has evolved, expanding the number of children it helps across a more diverse range of issues while staying true to its original vision – to help Queensland children in need.
The Fund maximises its impact and efficiency by only directing its funds to registered charities that demonstrate that they have the specialist skills and knowledge to deliver high-value, life-changing programs to children in need.
In order to apply, your organisation must:
– Be working to change the lives of Queensland children in need
– Be a registered charity with the Australian Charity and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC)
– Have Donor Gift Recipient (DGR) status
– Have met all your current reporting obligations with the ACNC
