Do we have to apply online?
Yes, applications must be submitted via our online application form.
We recommend drafting your application in another location, such as in Word, and then cut and pasting your responses into our online application form.
We don't have a website to include, can we use our Facebook page?
Yes, a website or Facebook page link is acceptable.
How do we create a video link for our 30 second video?
You need to provide us with a link/URL to your video, not email us your video.
To create a link/URL, we recommend using one of the following options:
Upload your video to your website, and copy the link/URL
Upload your video to Facebook, set it visible to Public, and copy the link/URL
Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo, and copy the link/URL
Create a link using WeTransfer, which is free and easy to use.
We are not expecting high quality video productions (videos shot on phones are fine). We just want to see your passion and project and get a sense of who you are and what you do.
Can I apply for equipment/fees I have already paid for?
No, this grant cannot be used to pay for retrospective costs (money that has already been spent).
How will the funds be paid?
By direct deposit.
Do I need to provide evidence of how I have spent the funds?
Yes, we will need recipients to acquit the grant (send in receipt/s and a brief report), as per usual granting practices.
Will there be future rounds?
Yes, we hope so!
I have a question, who can I contact?
Due to the volume of applications we receive for our grants, we will not be answering individual questions. You can, however, email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post responses to frequently asked questions once or twice during the application period.
