CareWorks Grants

CareWorks partners are eligible to apply for financial grants through annual and special CareWorks grant allocations. 

ANNUAL GRANTS  

In May each year, CareWorks partners are able to apply for grants to support their benevolent programs. CareWorks Partners will be notified when grants are available and will be invited to submit applications.

Programs that attract grants must qualify as a benevolent program. To qualify:

  • There must be an identifiable target group which is recognisably in need of assistance because of poverty, sickness, disability, destitution, suffering, misfortune, helplessness, or other kind of distress. 
  • The program must be addressing specific needs of the target group/s. 
  • The program must provide specific kinds of help in order to meet those needs.
  • The need must be of such seriousness, as will arouse community compassion; and more than ordinary human experience, eg. death of a family member, or loss of a job. (Reference: ACNC’s PBI Interpretation Statement para 5.3.2) 

EXTERNAL GRANTS  

CareWorks partners are encouraged to apply for grants from philanthropic trusts and other donor organisations.
