A quick wrap of grant and funding news from across Australia

⚠️ NSW ClubsGRANTS are under major review: "A NSW government review of a controversial grants program that allows licensed clubs to legally claim tax breaks on millions of dollars of poker machine revenue by donating money to themselves will examine whether the program should continue...The Herald revealed yesterday that the biggest beneficiaries of the scheme are often the clubs themselves, or their subsidiaries, including millions of dollars given to professional NRL sides in 2023."

💰 Small Grants are FRRR's most in-demand grants. While grants up to $25,000 are available, most grants are around $10,000. This recent article by FRRR's Place Portfolio Lead, Jill Karena, lines up directly with what we see at The Grants Hub. As we repeatedly say, more small grants are so desperately needed - especially those without unnecessarily long application forms.

🎓 The Centre for Social Impact's Education Scholarships are now open! This year more than $160,000 worth of scholarship funding is available. Find out more about the program and how to apply.

👏 Shoutout to Dog & Bone for reviewing their Impact Grants Program. We look forward to hearing the outcomes of their recent Impact Program round, after reviewing the program this year to try and reduce the number of unsuccessful applicants. Here's a message from the team:

"Historically, hundreds of NFP organisations had applied and only three to four grants awarded each round.

We will now award impact projects for specific services where we know we can genuinely make a difference. To broaden our impact even further, and expand the number of NFP's we can help, we are also extending the pro bono services we are offering."
