The Trust House Foundation is currently accepting applications for its Grant Program.
Every year, they provide more than $4 million in community gaming proceeds to fund community events and organisations through grants.
- Organisations will be considered more favourably if they provide the following:
- Community support, including the development and wellbeing of the young and aged.
- Cultural activities and recreation, including the performance and development of music, the arts, history and sport.
- Welfare and social services for the prevention and/or rehabilitation of addiction.
- Grant applications will be assessed having regard to the following criteria:
- Applicants must be non-profit organisations.
- Sporting grants can only be made for amateur sports.
- Sports clubs should be affiliated to a recognised national organisation.
- Applications must be submitted by sports clubs, not individuals.
- Administration costs and salaries may be funded if this helps to meet a recognised need within the community.
- All uniforms and equipment must remain the property of the recipient organisation. Funding of dress uniforms / socks is not permitted.
- Events or trips that are predominantly social in nature will not be funded. This includes family or group reunions.
- Grants for social activities to benefit disadvantaged groups may however, be considered, e.g., a Christmas luncheon for the elderly at the town community centre.
- Grant applications cannot be for an item that has already been paid for; the application must be future focused.
- Grants for public education, kindergartens and the like will be considered.
- Cultural purposes must be non-commercial and benefit the community. Examples include amateur theatre groups, non-profit museums and art galleries, amateur cultural groups, and non-profit community cultural or arts festivals.
