Grant Opportunity: Impact100 Melbourne 2021 Mini-Round

Impact100 Melbourne is now inviting applications from small charities based in Greater Melbourne for its mini-round for grants up to $20,000.

In response to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on charities where demand for services have increased while donations have declined, the theme for the 20/21 Impact Grant is ‘Recovery and Resilience.’

​Applications close on 31 August 2021.

Guidelines and application form can be downloaded from: https://www.impact100melbourne.org/2020-21-impact-grant

Impact100 is looking for applications which will enable charities to recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and enhance their resilience going forward. These might include

  • Developing new revenue streams or diversifying existing revenue streams; and/or
  • Adaptive capacity by assessing, monitoring and evolving operations to respond to the challenges created by recent events, ; and/or
  • Digital innovation and capability building such as long-term infrastructure investment, new technology or software; and/or
  • Service innovation and collaboration including partnerships or mergers, sharing services or office space, service redesign.

Like the rest of the world, COVID-19 has impacted on our community of donors and supporters. It is likely that our total distribution for this round will be in the range of $20,000 – hence, a ‘mini-round’. We know that not for profits can do amazing things with small grants, and we look forward to seeing what our amazing Melbourne charities come up with!

​Applications close on 31 August 2021. Guidelines and application form can be downloaded from: https://www.impact100melbourne.org/2020-21-impact-grant
