Volunteer Grants 2013 Closing Soon16.04.2013
Volunteers are a key part of the arts community and many projects exist and thrive as a direct result of their contribution. If you belong to a not-for-profit arts organisation whose volunteers assist disadvantaged communities and encourage inclusion of vulnerable people in community life, then you may be eligible for funding from the Volunteers Grant.
$16 million is available to support and encourage volunteering through the Australian Government’s Volunteer Grants 2013.
Eligible not-for-profit community organisations can apply for grants between $1,000 and $5,000 to:
- Purchase portable, tangible, small equipment items to help their volunteers
- Contribute to the reimbursement of fuel costs for their volunteers who use their own car to transport others to activities, deliver food, assist with medical appointments or help people in need
- Contribute to the reimbursement of transport costs incurred by volunteers with disability who are unable to drive
- Contribute to the cost of training courses and/or undertake background screening checks for their volunteers
Applications close on Wednesday 24 April 2013 at 5pm AEST.
