COVID-19 Kick Start Grants Now Open
Applications for our COVID-19 Kick-Start Grants are open now until 5PM on 31 July 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic many charities are struggling financially at the same time as they face increased demand for services. At the Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation we understand the important role the not-for-profit sector plays in supporting and strengthening the communities we live in.
With that thought in mind we are very pleased to announce our inaugural grant round to support Australia charities continue to deliver vital programs during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this round, we’ll be providing up to $90,000 to support eligible charities who have seen their fundraising revenue severely reduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our plan is to provide nine charities who provide services in the Heritage Bank communities with grants of up to $10,000.
From time to time, our Foundation Directors may choose to increase the size of the grant on a program that addresses an issue which they deem to be of potential benefit to many individuals.
