The James N Kirby Foundation is currently accepting applications for the Small Grants Program to support organisations that provide innovative solutions and opportunities to those in the community who need it most.
The Foundation considers requests under the following four categories, seeking to support organisations and programs whose work benefits:
- Small Grants encapsulate funding from $3,000 to $15,000 inclusive.
- The James N Kirby Foundation makes distributions within Australia only, with priority given to organisations in NSW or, in some cases, to national level programs whose work primarily benefits NSW.
All grant applicants are to complete and submit the application form enclosed on this website. In addition to the application form the following two items must be included:
- A covering letter of no more than 1 x A4 pages that must be on the letterhead of the entity endorsed as the DGR and must be signed by a Director, CEO or responsible person of the DGR. It should detail any previous grant history with the James N Kirby Foundation, and also include a list of the names and qualifications of your organisation’s Chair, Directors, CEO or Department Head.
- On no more than 1 x A4 page, a total breakdown of the budget of the project and how you will be meeting those costs. In addition, please advise if you are seeking funding as a one-off cost or will it continue past the funding period, and if it is to continue, how will you secure future funding.
