DONATE FOR Small GRANTS

Healing the land – healing ourselves – Together

Each year we run an annual small grants program offering grants of up to $3,000 to address disadvantage and exclusion within local towns and communities, especially in rural Australia. We always receive many more applications than we can fund.

You may wish to donate knowing your contribution will help grow stronger communities.
