If you are a young person with a big idea that will help other young people take action then the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation’s new granting program Backing the Future, with one-off, $50,000 grants to individuals 18+ whose work is focused on rural and regional young people might be just what you need to get your big idea to the proof of concept stage.
These grants are designed to back individuals researching, piloting or accelerating early-stage, innovative ideas aligned to one of the Foundation’s four focus areas: Caring for the Environment, Contributing to Society, Decent Work and Exploring Christian Faith and Values.
This is a unique opportunity for individuals to access funding to take their ideas to the next level. The Foundation is particularly excited to read applications from young people.
This web page provides an overview of Backing the Future and how to apply.
Applications close Wednesday 31 August 2022.
