New Grants Announced

Grantmakers invited to attend launch of new Incolink Research Grants and Scholarships for health and wellbeing of workers

Incolink Foundation Fund (IFF)  are launching a new grants and scholarship program on 14 September to develop a research project into the health and wellbeing of workers and their families in the Victorian commercial building and construction industry.

Open to both individuals and organisations, this specialised funding is unique in Australia and promises to provide interesting insight into a section of our population lacking in significant analysis.

All grantmakers are invited to attend the launch  in Melbourne next week:

WHEN: Wednesday, 14 September 2011, 10.15am

WHERE: Incolink, 51 Rathdowne Street, Carlton (Level 3 – enter from Rathdowne street entrance)

Morning tea & coffee provided

RSVP by 12 September to Alison by phoning (03) 9668 3061 or email

EDIT 12/09/11: Regrettably the Incolink Foundation Fund has had to unexpectedly cancel the Research Grants and Scholarships Launch event on the 14th of September due to an unforeseen circumstance which has their Chief Executive Officer, John Glasson, now unable to be in attendance. It’s hoped this launch will be rescheduled at a later date. The Research Grants and Scholarships will be available for application from later in 2011.

Sydney Community Foundation’s new Belonging Project to foster community participation

To foster connections and support for the marginalised of Sydney, encourage participation and a greater sense of belonging in their community, and help create a stronger, more inclusive community, the Sydney Community Foundation have launched the Belonging Project grants for the Greater Sydney area.

Grants of between $5k - $15k will be awarded to primarily early stage and innovative projects focusing on the areas of youth at risk, families and children, homelessness,  pathways to employment and migrant support and settlement.

Respresenting an innovative approach to grantmaking, successful applicants will not receive immediate funding from the SCF but rather have the opportunity to be included in the forthcoming “Belonging in Sydney” campaign which the SCF will take to potential donors in 2012.

Applications will close on 30 September 2011. Click here to visit the SCF website for more information.
