The Foundation has generally adopted an approach to funding of focusing on larger long-term funding partnerships.

The Foundation considers three types of funding partnerships set out below:

  • Flagship partners – funding generally provided to an organisation over five or more consecutive years with grant payments to be up to $3 million each year;
  • Major partners – usually multi-year funding support provided over a minimum of a three years with grant payments up to $1 million each year;
  • Community partners – funding support provided usually in amounts between $300,000 to $500,000 each year, over periods usually up to three years.

From time to time and subject to the availability of investment earnings, we will also consider applications for once-off funding requests for grants of amounts less than $100,000.
