Our grants strategy

The donations we receive from members of the community are used for grant making across our grant streams outlined below.

To ensure Foundation SA is representative of the needs of the community we serve we engage and consult with donors, community members and subject matter experts to determine the role we play in creating positive impact. Wherever possible, we also seek feedback and guidance from those at the heart of the issues we may be exploring.

Our grants strategy has been developed after an extensive donor and community consultation process and will continue to evolve as we grow and learn.

The organisations we fund receive more than just funding support. Depending on their needs, the Foundation offers referrals to other funding bodies, promotion to our community, and connection to other resources.

Foundation SA grants will be promoted via social media and here on our grants page.
