Organisations interested in applying for a grant from the Foundation should complete the Bennelong Grant Application Form. The Board have decided that at present we will concentrate on the areas of crisis support, migrant community welfare and youth (in particular education and training).
Along with the Application Form, the organisation must provide:
All applications and supporting documentation should be forwarded to:
Level 2, 9 Queen Street
Melbourne VIC 3000
For 2013, the closing date for applications for the first round of funding is 15 February 2013 and for the second round, 23 August 2013. The Board meets twice a year to consider applications and after submitting an application, you will be advised in writing when you may expect a decision.
Bennelong Foundation may visit the site of any organisation to which it intends to provide a grant at times and conditions agreed between the parties.
Grant recipients will be required to sign a Grant Agreement before payment is made which will include a half-yearly reporting programme.
The decision of the Board as to whether or not funds will be granted is not subject to review and reasons for the decision may not necessarily be provided.
