Alongside our long-term partnerships we also provide opportunity grants to organisations that address at least one of our goals. The grants (up to $25,000) are for organisations to trial, develop or learn something new about their work. These can be a one-off, discreet offering or an opportunity to learn more about each other and develop a deeper understanding of how we can work together.
Some of our latest opportunity grant recipients are featured below:
