About our Grant Making Program

Stand Like Stone offers small grants in August.  Applications will be received from 15th August - 30th September.
 
 Organisations are invited to apply for grant funding of up to $5000, for charitable projects that benefit Limestone Coast communities.

Through its grant making program Stand Like Stone supports charitable projects of public benefit to Limestone Coast communities.  Stand Like Stone achieves its vision of giving for lasting impact through its granting activity. A grant is a gift (usually of money) given for the common good. Grants are most commonly made to non-profit organisations and are given for a particular charitable purpose.    

 

 
What can be funded?
As Stand Like Stone is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a tax concession charity (TCC), it is required to fund projects that are charitable.  
Characteristics of charitable projects include: 
  • helping those who lack the resources to obtain what is necessary for a modest standard of living in the Australian community
  • advancement of education
  • having other purposes beneficial to the community such as public works and community facilities; promotion of industry, commerce and agriculture; defence and public order; improvement and protection of the environment; moral improvement
  • having a public benefit rather than a private benefit
  • relieving poverty, sickness or distress 
 
Stand Like Stone favours applications that have a public benefit and have the following characteristics:
  • one–off projects for a specific purpose,
  • demonstrate sustainability beyond the funding period, 
  • develop and strengthen communities in the Limestone Coast,
  • reduce social disadvantage in the Limestone Coast,
  • help find solutions to community problems,
  • make sure as many people as possible benefit from the project funded and
  • where possible, include a financial and / or in-kind co-contribution
 
What can’t be funded?
  • Operational and administration costs.
  • Previous grant recipients who have not completed their final report requirements.
  • The encouragement or advancement of sport and recreation and social and political activities are not considered charitable by the Australian Taxation Office.  Applications from sporting organisations need to benefit the wider community and should clearly indicate which other local organisations are involved.
  • Government departments and organisations are not considered charitable by the Australian Taxation Office.  Applications from government departments and organisations need to demonstrate that they are not seeking funding for activities that are the core responsibility of Government.  Applications need to demonstrate that the activity is outside of or in addition to its core purpose.
  • Projects that give donations to other organisations.
  • Projects that are capable of attracting funding from other sources.
  • Funding for projects known to be in existence or funded by other funding bodies.
  • Applications from individuals.
  • Projects that have already occurred or will occur before being advised of the outcome of the application.  At least 8 weeks after the application closing date should be allowed when planning your project.
