Keep an eye on our socials for future grants opportunities or sign-up to our newsletter here.

What’s the aim of the Neighbourhood Grants?

You know what your community needs to thrive and we’d like to support you to achieve this. When we say ‘community’, we mean your neighbourhood, your community group or a community of individuals brought together by a common purpose.

The Foundation SA Neighbourhood Grants offer non-profit organisations, up to $2,000 to support acts of community connection that strengthen the bonds of neighbourhoods, led by people in their own communities.

We know this grant this size won’t change the world, but we also know that community change is about more than money.
