When do applications close for this round of the Westfund Community Grants Program?

Applications closed on Thursday 13 May 2021 at 5pm AEST. Winners will be announced soon.

Can my organisation apply for more than one grant?

No - to ensure fairness, we will only accept one application per applicant per round.

Can I apply again if I've previously received a Westfund Community Grant?

Yes - we don't restrict previous grant recipients from applying again in a future round. Applications are subject to the same Terms and Conditions and selection criteria.

I'm having trouble with my application - I've put information in but I can't proceed to the next page. Can you help?

We've created the Community Grants Application form to ensure that all organisations have the opportunity to give us as much information as our Grants Committee may need to help guide their decisions. This means that for some questions, we're looking for at least a minimum number of characters in your answer. Please check if you have provided enough information in your answer - if there's not enough information, you won't be able to proceed to the next page. There are also some mandatory fields in the form - if you're having trouble, just check that you've filled out these fields.

Still having problems? Reach out to our team at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help.
