When will the next grant round open?
Our community customer grants program runs annually. Our next grant round will open March 2024. The exact date will be announced early next year.
What are the eligibility criteria?
Our grant program is for community customers who have held a Bank Australia account for at least 1 year at 30 June every funding year. For example, customers who open a Bank Australia product on or before 30 June 2023 can apply for a 2024 grant.
Applicants must be an organisation, such as a not-for-profit, community, school, volunteer or social enterprise with an ABN. Deductible gift recipient status is not required. Religious, political or commercial organisations are not eligible.
I am a personal customer of Bank Australia, but my employer is not a customer. Can my employer still apply for funding?
No. The organisation applying for funding needs to be the Bank Australia customer.
Can Bank Australia customers partner with other organisations to deliver a project?
Yes. The lead organisation on the project must be a Bank Australia customer, but that lead organisation is able to partner with other organisations (who may be customers or not).
Can I submit multiple applications for different projects at the same organisation?
No. Applicants can only submit one application per organisation each round.
