Grants are a great way I can partner with your community organisation to provide financial support.
This page will be regularly updated with information on current grant opportunities. Subscribe to my e-newsletter to stay up-to-date with new rounds.
Veteran and Community Grants
Ex-service organisations (ESOs), or non-ESOs working in partnership with an ESO, are invited to apply for grant funding under the Veteran and Community Grants Program.
The objective of the program is to maintain and improve the independence and quality of life for members of the Australian veteran community by providing funding for projects that sustain or enhance health and wellbeing.
