Deadline: 8 December 2017

The Ian Potter Foundation is seeking expression of interest for the First round of its 2018 Grant program across a broad range of sectors and endeavors.

The Ian Potter Foundation is a major Australian philanthropic foundation that supports and promotes excellence and innovation. The Foundation was established in 1964 by Australian financier, businessman and philanthropist, Sir Ian Potter (1902 – 1994).

The Foundation’s mission is to maintain a tradition of encouraging excellence and enabling innovation to facilitate positive social change, and develop Australia’s creativity and capacity as a nation.

Program Areas

  • Arts
  • Community Wellbeing
  • Education
  • Environment & Conservation
  • Health & Disability
  • Science

Funding Principles

  • A commitment to excellence: The foundation supports organisations, programs and individuals who are outstanding in their field.
  • A focus on prevention: To maximise the value of grants, the foundation try to identify and support projects that address the causes of any problems rather than treat the symptoms. Supporting research is fundamental to this approach.
  • Encourage innovation: The foundation seeks to fund programs and projects that take a new approach to solving problems, especially those that can be evaluated and have potential for expansion and further development.
  • Potential for leverage: The foundation’s grants have greater impact when combined with support from other sources. These might include other trusts and foundations, government, business or volunteers. The foundation is happy to be one of a number of supporters of a program.
  • Long-term thinking: The foundation tries to fund projects that will continue to have an impact well beyond the period of their grant. The long term sustainability of the project is an important consideration.
  • Partnerships: The foundation encourages collaborations and partnerships that facilitate combining knowledge and resources to achieve a shared goal.
