Volunteer Grants Program

Expressions of interest are now open for the 2022-2023 Volunteer Grants program for the Federal Electorate of Griffith. The Volunteer Grants program can provide funding to not-for-profit organisations whose workforce is at least 40% volunteers for funding amounts between $1,000 and $5,000. 

These Grants are designed to: 

  • Help community organisations support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers
  • Help community organisations support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering 
  • Encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering 


Who can apply? 

  • Not-for-profit incorporated organisations whose workforce is comprised of at least 40% volunteers
  • An unincorporated association that agrees to the primary contact on your application assuming personal legal liability on behalf of the organisation should the application be successful
  • Trustees applying on behalf of a Trust

Note: your organisation must be located within the federal electorate of Griffith. (You can find your local electorate at the AEC website.) 


How does it work?

Applications take place in two steps: 

  1. Expressions of interest are made to Max Chandler-Mather MP and are assessed in conjunction with a committee of Griffith locals. 
  2. Selected applicants are invited to complete their application process with the Community Grants Hub.

You can submit an expression of interest here:
