Note: The electronic copy of your Application Form must be in Word format.  Attachments can be in PDF.

You are invited to phone or email Sandy Shaw to discuss any project ideas that you believe fit our funding priorities prior to making an application.

Receipt and Notification

Upon receipt, we will advise you that we have received your application.  Applications will be considered at bi-monthly Board meetings and you will be advised as soon as possible of the outcome of your application.

Successful applicants will receive a letter and a grant agreement for the approved grant amount.
The grant agreement will require that:

  • Grants are used as described in the application;
  • Projects are completed within 12 months; and
  • A final Acquittal Report is submitted at the end of the project, including a signed statement of expenditure of the grant.

Grantees are also required to forward a receipt for the grant by return mail.

Failure to adhere to the grant agreement will jeopardise consideration of future grant applications.
