Grantmaking resources

Helpful resources for effective, responsible and best practice grantmaking.

Grantmaking is the process of providing a grant of money to an individual or organisation so they can carry out activities for the common good. In Australia, grantmaking usually refers to providing grants to not-for-profit organisations by philanthropic foundations and companies.

Our grantmaking resources are curated to help you understand effective and responsible grantmaking. They provide guidance for building best practice into your grants processes and an opportunity to see what’s happening in grantmaking in Australia today.
