Each quarter they invite eligible community groups — specifically those who use hospitality to support disadvantaged or under-served communities — to apply for grants of $5,000 each.
The SilverChef Community Grants Program is open to eligible Australian community groups that use hospitality or food services to help disadvantaged or under-served members of their local community.
These community groups can include:
• registered charities and not-for-profits
• social enterprises (direct-benefit, cross-subsidy, or donation model)
• private entities with an ABN for which improving the lives of Indigenous people accounts for more than 50% of their time and/or resources.
What can the grant be used for?
Each $5,000 grant is a 75:25 mix of equipment and cash, as follows:
Each grant recipient receives a $3,750 credit to spend on selected ‘Certified Used’ commercial kitchen equipment advertised on SilverChef’s website.
Each grant recipient receives $1,250 in cash. This money is intended to help towards the cost of the equipment’s freight and installation. Any remaining cash will be transferred to the recipient’s nominated bank account. They can spend this cash however they like.
