Mary MacKillop Today’s Community Grants Program seeks to empower people in need to build a better future for themselves and their communities. By participating in community led projects, individuals build skills and gain knowledge to engage with their local community and take advantage of life opportunities.

Applications for the 2021 Community Grants Program funding round open on 10 August and close on 14 September 2020.

Eligible organisations can apply for grants up to $10,000 AUD to deliver transformative projects that promote life-long learning for vulnerable Australians.

The Program began as a response to the ministries of the Sisters of Saint Joseph dedicated to helping vulnerable communities. In 2020, the Program awarded $150,000 in small grants to 15 recipients in urban, regional and remote communities.

The grants program creates positive change by supporting small, local organisations to assisting some of the most vulnerable groups in their communities, including homeless women, people living with disability, refugees and asylum seekers, to become more empowered to engage in broader society.
