Before you commence a grant application, please review the June Canavan Foundation Impact Framework 2021 – 2031.
Formal grant applications are made by completing and submitting our JCF Grant Application Form. Note, an application may be submitted in any format, provided it substantially covers the information requested in the JCF Grant Application Form. You may be asked to provide proof of your organisation’s TCC and Item 1 DGR status if we are unable to verify this easily. We will acknowledge receipt of your application within 2 weeks.
There is no set grant application period. You may submit a Grant Application at any time, however applications will only be considered twice at bi-annual Board meetings, usually held in March and September. The cut-off date for having your application considered at the March meeting is 1 February, and for consideration at the September meeting is 1 August.
The June Canavan Foundation Board assesses grant applications in the context of two parameters:
The June Canavan Foundation Impact Framework
- How likely is it to further the JCF vision, mission and role
- How strongly does it support one or more of the five focus areas and geographical priorities
- How closely does it meet our criteria and preferences
- Is there sufficient evidence that the applicant organisation has the resources – including time, knowledge, people, skills, and infrastructure – to achieve what it intends?
- Is the budget realistic?
There is no set grant size, however our distributions include small grants and donations (generally $1,000 -$20,000) and large grants (generally $20,000 -$50,000). Favourable consideration will be given to funding multi-year proposals with annual review.
Formal grant applications are made by completing and submitting our JCF Grant Application Form. Note, an application may be submitted in any format, provided it substantially covers the information requested in the JCF Grant Application Form.
If you are successful in your grant application we will advise you in writing of the amount of your grant, the grant, reporting and evaluation conditions, and the contact person from the Foundation that will work with you.
The June Canavan Foundation operates on principles of open disclosure and transparency. If you are successful in obtaining a grant, you will be listed as a grant recipient and our website will link to yours (if applicable). We will also make public any progress and acquittal reports you provide us for others to learn about the outcomes of your work.
If we decide not to award you a grant we will provide advice, giving brief reasons as to why your application was not successful. Where considered appropriate, we may suggest you re-apply with more information or a revised proposal.
