In its third year, the inGrained Foundation’s Northern Rivers Large Grants Program returns with a $100,000 funding pool, ready to support a diverse range of local not-for-profits.

From Tuesday April 6, not-for-profits with deductible gift recipient (DGR) status will be able to apply for a grant between $5,000 and $30,000 to help them tackle the varied challenges currently facing the Northern Rivers community.

James Perrin from the inGrained Foundation said this year’s categories are: ‘Conservation of natural resources and habitats; action on climate change; mental health and wellbeing; accommodation and homelessness’; and ‘inclusion and diversity’.

‘We’re so excited to be running this grants program again this year.

‘We have identified these five categories to fulfil clear environmental and social needs within the Northern Rivers community’.

Mr Perrin says to be successful, applicants must operate within one of these categories and be able to provide information on how the inGrained funds will have a tangible outcome for the community.

Grant recipients for 2020 were Rainforest 4 Foundation, Mullumbimby District Neighbourhood Centre, Tweed Landcare, Support for New Mums, Zero Emissions Byron, and Autism Camp Australia.

Mr Perrin says, ‘In 2020, the foundation was thrilled to donate over $200,000, including $70,000 to local and state-based fire brigades, rural fire services, and drought-relief efforts at the time of the 2019/2020 bushfires’.

The inGrained Foundation was founded as a separate not-for-profit by Stone & Wood in 2018. 

Applications close Monday May 3, and for more info visit www.ingrainedfoundation.com.au.
