It’s easy to apply for a Whole Kids Small Seeds Community Grant.

step 1



Check the closing date for applications in each round (see below) and then ensure that your project meets all the eligibility criteria and our terms and conditions.

12 April 2016 Update – We are not accepting anymore applications until next round.


step 2



Make sure you have all the information about your project ready before you submit your application. You will need to provide details about:
•  Your organisation or group and what it does.
•  What the project is about, including start/end dates and budget.
•  How the budget will be used.
•  What do you aim to achieve with your project.
•  What are the steps/activities for your project.
•  What ‘community need’ your project addresses and why Whole Kids should support your project.

Remember, while we may fund exceptionally worthwhile projects at our maximum grant amount per application ($5,000), we are more likely to choose smaller projects that we can fully fund at lower grant amounts.


step 3



When you’ve got all your information ready, complete the online application form and agree to the terms and conditions. We cannot accept applications without this declaration.

Please note that we are unable to provide feedback to applicants regarding the status or progress of their application, or provide details as to the reason why an individual application may have been unsuccessful in receiving funding.
