Terms of Funding & Privacy Collection Notice (Community Grants)

Australian Ethical offers Community Grants to not-for-profit social enterprises and organisations, and registered charities based in Australia. New and emerging or small not-for-profit groups are eligible to apply as long as they have an ABN, a constitution or memorandum and articles of association (or other similar document which confirms your organisation’s not for profit status), and an Australian bank account.

Terms of Funding

  2. Grants to organisations will be given and should be used for the purpose stated in the application.
  3. Funded organisations are required to provide a follow-up report by the date advised in post-funding correspondence.
  4. The funding provided to organisations as grants is considered by Australian Ethical to be freely given and would not ordinarily constitute consideration for taxable supply by the recipient.
