Sisters of Charity Foundation Community Grants

Date/Deadline: 06 Feb, 2023

They manage charity grants a little differently at the Sisters of Charity Foundation. Because their aim is to provide help where it is most needed, they don’t look for the obvious recipients and attempt to build initiatives where they think they should.

Instead they offer support to those who might have ‘fallen through the cracks’, the people that would otherwise be overlooked.

They partner with people who not only need genuine assistance, but who already have great ideas and strategies to create change. In this way, they can offer the most effective support in the most essential areas, allowing the greatest number of people to benefit from their help.

How it works

The Sisters of Charity Foundation provides charity grants of up to $15,000 to eligible applicants. They deliver practical, real world support to smaller grassroots organisations that can’t find help from more traditional sources.

Once accepted as an eligible applicant, they work closely with you and your organisation to understand exactly what is needed, so they can ensure you receive the best quality outcomes.

Eligibility criteria:

  • The organisation’s mission and operations, and the proposed program, are consistent with the application guidelines of the Sisters of Charity Foundation, and must make a huge difference to those in need.
  • The applicant is able to demonstrate the knowledge and the expertise necessary to implement the program as well as the skills necessary for the sustainable management of the program and the responsible stewardship of resources.
  • The applicant organisation has the support of its Board, or in the case of an individual, the proposer’s supporting authority.
  • The organisation is not-for-profit and has Income Tax Exempt Charity (ITEC) status and Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Item 1 status.
  • The organisation’s annual income is less than $1 million.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation favours programs that:

  • provide compassion, hope and practical assistance
  • fall between the cracks of other funding sources
  • are not associated with well established organisations with significant reserves and/or are not capable of raising their own funds
  • are not eligible for funding from government or other sources.
