Minister announces Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week grant round
Minister Porter recently announced the opening of the grant round for the second Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week, to be held from 5-11 December 2016 with the theme ‘the power of partnerships’.
Community organisations can apply for a share of $160,000 in grants to support activities that showcase their philanthropic partnerships, such as community expos and book and film launches. The grants round opened on 29 April and applications for grants of up to $10,000 can be submitted until Monday 6 June 2016.
The Week is an initiative supported by the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership and is delivered by Philanthropy Australia in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
