Mercy Foundation’s Social Justice Small Grants Program: Inviting Not for Profit Organisations in Australia

Deadline: 27 March 2017

The Mercy Foundation is currently accepting applications from Australian organisations for its Social Justice Small Grants Program that provide seed funding to assist communities and organisations to build capacity that will help create structural change and bring about greater social justice in Australia.

The Mercy Foundation seeks to create greater social equity and inclusion in the Australian community.

Grant Information

 Grant amounts range from $1,000 to $10,000 per organisations.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications are invited from Not for Profit Organisations in Australia only.
  • Innovative projects that require seed funding to increase social equity and inclusion and challenge unjust structures and systems will be prioritised.
  • The focus for 2017 is on projects that address social justice issues concerning older people. Projects that bring about a more inclusive society for older people, restore dignity to older people and foster solidarity among all generations, especially the young and old will be prioritised.
  • The Mercy Foundation prioritises projects that target disadvantaged women and/or women with children, regardless of the annual social justice focus issue.
  • Projects that address other social justice areas may also be submitted for consideration.
  • Applications are accepted for projects that are run wholly within Australia, by community based groups or organisations based in Australia.
  • Organisations applying for funds must be a legal entity (or auspiced by a legal entity), not-for-profit and therefore exempt from income tax, but are not required to have Deductible Gift Recipient status.
