One of the programs we run on the Mornington Peninsula that was pioneered in 2014 is the small grants campaign.
What are small grants?
We know that sometimes start up organisations just need a little boost of funding to get a great project off the ground. Seeing small organisations flourish from our contributions of $5000 led us to establish the small grants program. While this program is not for everyone, if you are an organization that could use $5000 to get your project going we would love to hear from you.
In 2014 we ran a small grants program on the peninsula and awarded grants as follows:
In the light of our mission to help young people break the cycle of disadvantage, we asked four questions:
- What is going on in your area that concerns you?
- What do you want to do about it?
- How would you use $5,000?
- How would you measure the outcomes?
