Application for project funding from the Hamer Family Fund is a two-stage process:
- A brief (2 A4 pages maximum) submission describing how your project and your group or organisation fits within the objectives of the Fund. At its subsequent quarterly meeting, the Board will consider this submission and decide whether or not to invite a full grant application.
- A full grant application, clearly stating
- Major challenges foreseen
- Criteria and targets for measurement of results
- Financial requirements and budget
- Alignment with Hamer Family Fund aims
Funding is provided by the Australian Communities Foundation, acting on the recommendation of the HFF Board. Generally the November meeting of the Board considers grants to be recommended to the ACF; if funds permit, applications may be considered at other meetings.
Normally, grants can only be made to charitable entities which are endorsed by the ATO as "Deductible Gift Recipients" (DGR). However, in some circumstances arrangements can be made via ACF for non-DGR entities to receive grants.
No more than $10 000.
Must fit with Fund aims (see Homepage).
Projects should run for no longer than a year (but could be part of a larger ongoing enterprise).
The project outcomes must be assessable and will require full closeout reporting.
Preference will be given to succinct submissions written in plain language, without jargon.
