Heads up Western Australia! Round one of the LotteryWest COVID Relief 'Strengthening & Adapting Organisations' grant program is currently open, closing 21 September 2020. $10 million is up for grabs for qualifying Western Australian NFP (Not-For-Profit) organisations and community groups.
The objective of this grant program is to support NFP organisations and community groups to prepare for, and implement longer-term organisational changes. This support will foster a more innovative, collaborative and resilient network of NFP organisations and community groups that can better serve the needs of communities during and following the crisis.
There’s $10 million up for grabs under the three grant program streams:
Organisational Capability & Governance
Innovative Service Models
Grant applications must seek to achieve one or more of the outcomes outlined below:
Enhanced organisational governance and capability to be stronger and well positioned to respond to any further crisis;
The development of innovative business models or service delivery models that support community organisations and the not-for-profit sector achieve greater impact;
Enhanced collaboration across the not-for-profit-sector towards shared goals.
Round closes 21 September.
Available for WA based NFPs only
Large and small project funding available for:
Small grants may include support for working out how to adapt in order to be more effective and resilient, a ready to go, small scale initiative or developing bigger ideas which meet the program outcomes.
Larger grants may be for projects which support long-term change and or implementation of innovative, larger scale approaches which meet the program outcomes.
Governance & Capability Improvement
The level of scrutiny that is now applied to Directors on Boards has heightened due to a spate of recent corporate failures and related media scandals. Directors (including voluntary Directors) are responsible to ensure that appropriate and effective governance is applied.
If you want to improve your organisation's governance practices and capability, now is the time to consider if this grant can assist you to implement these measures so that your organisation can be well positioned to respond to any future crisis.
