Why is there a revenue cap of $1.5 million for applicants this year?
The core focus of our community grants program is to support local grassroots organisations working closely within their communities. After receiving a significant proportion of applications from organisations with very large revenues, we decided to make a formal commitment to supporting smaller local groups by refining the size of organisations eligible to apply.
This change will allow more opportunity for smaller charities to be successful and will also help improve the overall fairness of the process, particularly during the public voting phase.
If your annual revenue is marginally over $1.5 million, please contact Nick at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (02) 8276 6234 to discuss if you are still eligible to apply.
