In this round the Board approved 75 grants valued at $4.7 million.
The Ian Potter Foundation is making changes to its funding rounds going forward. In future the Foundation will only be seeking applications in each program area once a year.
At our recent Board Meeting, the Governors considered invited applications from our final funding round for 2016. As this was an invitation only round, fewer grants were under consideration. The Board approved twelve grants totalling $12.9 million. Of these four were major grants.
Due to significant forward commitments, grant applications in Science, Environment & Conservation and the Arts will not open for Round 2, 2016.
