This grant opportunity for small Australian Children Charities is offering up to $50,000 in funding:

Last year alone, the St. George Foundation granted close to $1.5 million to 31 charity partners. Now, their Community Grants of up to $50,000 are open to small Australian children’s charities that receive minimal government support and are not able to generate significant outcome independently.

St.George Foundation provides Community Grants of up to $50,000 to small Australian children’s charities that attract little assistance from the government. Often, these charities struggle to generate significant income of their own. These grants help to brighten the lives of children and young people in need in our local communities.
