Apply for a grant

Our granting strategy focuses heavily on Educational Equity and Biodiversity Conservation and working in ways which are most likely to achieve positive differences in both areas.

To help organisations achieve the desired outcomes, we grant in three different ways:

  • Smart Grants: up to $40,000 per year for up to three years (online application Educational Equity only)
  • Advocacy Grants: up to $50,000 per year for up to three years (by invitation only)
  • Challenge and Change Grants: $40,000 to $100,000 per year for up to three years. (by invitation only)

Please note: Smart Grant applications via our website for Biodiversity Conservation are on hold until 30 June 2023.

All facets of the Trust's work, including our grant making, are guided by the principles of our Ethics Charter, which ensures we act responsibly, appropriately, and ethically.
