$350,000 social investment grants available
Applications have opened for Community Sector Banking’s 2019 Social Investment Grants Program targeting organisations that are ‘building capacity.’ A total of $350,000 will be awarded to successful applicants. Organisations can apply for grants of either $25,000 or $50,000.
Since 2014, the Social Investment Grants Program has supported dozens of not-for-profit organisations in their quest to help excluded, marginalised and disadvantaged people. Not only does the program strengthen communities, it also strengthens the not-for-profit organisations that many people rely on to get by.
“Our annual Social Investment Grants Program, funded by Community Sector Banking and contributions from Social Investment Deposit Account holders, shows the power that everyday banking can have on the community,” said Andrew Cairns, CEO of Community Sector Banking.

“We decided on the building capacity theme because it provides organisations from all sectors the opportunity to apply and helps foster collaboration that focuses on the alleviation of issues,” Cairns said.
