We are so pleased to be able to announce our first group of successful applicants of our 2018 NFP Sponsorship Program!
This week our Grants Researcher Kristine had a chat with Carissa Lockley who was recently awarded The Grants Hub's Volunteer Grant. Carissa's uncompromising dedication to voluntary work, along with her commitment to help families through her work at Ronald McDonald House was not only an inspiration to the grants panel, but also our team at The Grants Hub. Read on to learn more about how Carissa will be using this grant to make a difference in her volunteer role at Ronald McDonald House.
After reviewing our business direction for 2018, we have decided to focus on our Grants Directory and Grants Research services, rather than working with new clients on grant writing and other broader consulting services. We like to do one thing and do it well, and this decision will help us do that.
After assessing 3,098 applications for our Volunteer Support Grant, I am very pleased to announce that Carissa Lockley from Ronald McDonald House Southeast Queensland in our inaugural recipient!
I recently caught up with some of our members and had a chance to ask how The Grants Hub has helped their organisations.
Here's what Lynda Little, Manager at Charlestown Community Centre had to say.
What do you love about The Grants Hub?
The Grants Hub gives you a regular, easy to digest list of grants with a quick teaser of information. This makes it quick and efficient to keep your eye on what opportunities are coming up, without spending endless hours searching.
What would you say to someone considering joining The Grants Hub as a member?
Think about the cost to your organisation of employing you per hour. How many hours of your time are saved by having membership to The Grants Hub? How many hours of your pay would cover the membership fee? Do the math!
I love it - have loved it for years. Thanks!
Founder & Managing Director
We are very excited to be adding a grants program to our giving!

Lately, if I'm really honest, I've been feeling tired, uninspired and bogged down by the day-in-day-out of running a business. So I took a break last week. It's the first time in 5 years that I have taken more than one consecutive day completely off work.
Our Capacity Building Coordinator, Lesley Harris, was recently featured by the CBR Innovation Network for her work in founding Capital Giving in the ACT.
It was so inspiring to visit the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle last week - one of the largest grant givers in the world. The Foundation works in over 130 countries and their grant stats are quite phenomenal.
