The Ian Potter Foundation makes grants across a broad range of sectors and endeavours. Our grants are managed through nine program areas: Arts, Community Wellbeing, Education, Environment & Conservation, Health & Disability, Medical Research, Science, Travel, and Conference. 

The majority of our grants are made in response to applications and/or an expression-of-interest, although occasionally grants may be made in response to a need or opportunity pro-actively identified by the Foundation. The latter are usually major funding initiatives.

This section guides grant-seekers step-by-step through the process of applying for a grant, starting with confirming eligibility to receive a grant under the Australian taxation laws and checking the suitability of the project before setting up an online account and submitting an application. Please note that most of our program areas consider applications via a two-step process that may take from four to six months to complete.

We encourage you to make use of the FAQ’s, tips and hints and downloadable documents that provide extra detail, should you need it.

If you can’t find the information you need or have any doubts, do call us.  We are happy to answer questions and provide additional guidance.
