Inaugural grant round provides $90,000 for charities hit by COVID in QLD and NSW

July 02nd, 2020

The Heritage Bank Charitable Foundation’s first-ever round of grants will see $90,000 being made available to help smaller charities in QLD and NSW that have been hit hard by COVID-19.

Nine COVID-19 Kick-Start Grants of $10,000 will be made available, with applications in the COVID-19 Kick-Start Grant Round opened on Wednesday 24 June with the successful applicants to be notified in October. 

Newly appointed Charitable Foundation Executive Officer Paul Olds said the COVID-19 pandemic meant many charities are struggling financially at the same time as they face increased demand for services.

“I’m thrilled to announce that our commitment to making the Foundation a real force for good in Australia has taken a significant step forward with the launch of our first grant funding round.” Mr Olds said.
