IMPORTANT UPDATE: IN THE HOPE TO PROVIDE PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS WITH MORE SPACE TO ADAPT TO THE CURRENT CONDITIONS, WE’VE EXTENDED THE DEADLINE TO THURSDAY 21 MAY. SEE UPDATED APPLICATION GUIDELINES HERE.
It’s that time of year again – our inGrained Foundation’s Northern Rivers Large Grants Program 2020 is kicking off on Thursday 12 March with $100,000 funding available for local not-for-profits!
For the second year running, the Northern Rivers Large Grants Program 2020 invites Northern Rivers social and environmental not-for-profits with DGR status to apply for a grant between $10,000 and $30,000, with maximum 10 organisations awarded in May.
The total funding pool also includes a $10,000 ‘Employee Funded Grant’ created by our permanent team, who substituted their monthly carton allowance with a cash donation to the inGrained Foundation to raise the money.
Following a summer of bushfire disaster across NSW, Queensland and Victoria, inGrained made this year’s theme ‘regeneration and social connection’, and so are asking applicants to show how their projects contribute to these activities in our region.
This year, with help from Stone & Wood, Fixation Brewing and Granite Belt Cider Co, the inGrained Foundation is thrilled to be able to extend the funding opportunity to more local not-for-profits. With 26 wonderful applications in last year’s round, we’re really looking forward to seeing who applies this year.
We also proud to have recently donated over $70,000 via the inGrained Foundation to local and state-based fire brigades, rural fire services and drought relief efforts across NSW, Queensland and Victoria, thanks to funds we raised with Fixation Brewing and Granite Belt Cider Co.
From Thursday 12 March, Northern Rivers social and environmental not-for-profits with DGR status are encouraged to read the guidelines and apply before Thursday 21 May. All details and applications will appear on the inGrained Foundation website from Thursday 12 March.
