STRATEGIC / INNOVATIVE 
GRANT INFORMATION

A strength of the not for profit community is its’ ability to develop creative and innovative solutions to problems and needs it sees in the community for which Mirboo North & District Community Foundation (MNDCF) provides Strategic and Innovative Grants.

The grants will be awarded for programs that:

  • test, demonstrate, trial or pilot a new concept;
  • support the expansion or scaling up an innovative, proven pilot program; or
  • conduct research to build the understanding of an area or issue related to disadvantage.
  • provide strong evidence that the programs will after a period of 2 to 3 years, become self-sustainable and embedded in the organisation/s running the program.

MNDCF will, subject to economic and financial conditions, allocate around $70,000 per annum for the grants.

All grants are for 2 to 3 years to when the program becomes self-sustainable and embedded.

MMDCF expects to fund 2-3 Strategic/Innovation grants per annum (subject to applications received).

Applications which include partnerships, a plan for sustainability and have evidence of matched funding will be well regarded.

Only one application will be accepted from each organisation in this strategic funding round.

IMPORTANT - The Strategic/Innovation grant process is a three stage process, which includes a telephone consultation with MNDCF, an Expression of Interest Application, a Full Application and an in person presentation to the Grant Advisory Panel. All relative forms are attached below.

 

STRATEGIC GRANT APPLICATIONS for 2017 will re-open in September
