COVID-19 Funding

Philanthropy Australia is proud to launch a partnership with Australian Communities Foundation (ACF) to help coordinate the Australian philanthropic funding response to COVID-19.

Many Australian charities are facing a battle to survive. Fundraising activity is grinding to a halt, staff are being laid off and volunteering has slowed. These changes are also impacting significantly on the services our sector can provide to support the most vulnerable members of our community get through COVID-19.

ACF has generously offered its National Funding Portal as a place for where charities can register their funding needs and philanthropic funders can connect with the funding opportunities available to tackle COVID-19.
