We’re excited to announce the winners of The Grants Hub Make It Happen Small Grants Program for 2022.

We received 644 applications from some incredible organisations doing amazing things.  It’s evident that the need for funding amongst our community has never been greater. We cycled through ‘all the feels’ when reading your applications. Some made us cry, some made us smile, and all made us more determined than ever to continue our work to help you find the right grants, all in one place.

After much deliberation, we’re thrilled to announce our 10 winners, who will each receive a $1000 grant. Congratulations to:
