Building Digital Skills grants help organisations to start up and continue delivering their Be Connected digital literacy programs. The aim of the Building Digital Skills grants program is to enable organisations to support older Australians 50+ through free face-to-face contact (if safe to do so), either one-on-one or in small groups, to develop their digital skills and confidence, utilising the learning courses available on the Be Connected Learning site.

Organisations who would like to apply for a Building Digital Skills grant must:

  • Be a registered Network Partner within the Be Connected Network (join the Network).
  • Provide an ABN number (if applying for a $5,000 grant or greater)
  • Have public liability insurance
  • Have acquitted previous grant/s awarded by Good Things Foundation

Organisations new to the Be Connected Network: Network Partners applying for their first Be Connected Building Digital Skills grant can only apply for a $2,500 grant in the first instance. They will be eligible for a second grant once they have met 80% of their learner registration requirement and have submitted a satisfactory financial acquittal of their grant.

Existing Network Partners: Network Partners in receipt of an Activation or Building Digital Skills grant who wish to expand the reach can apply for a Building Digital Skills grant once they have met 80% of their learner registration requirement. Please note that Network Partners will be limited to two Building Digital Skills grants in a 12 month period.

Applications close: 30 July 2021.
