Over the past 12 months, the Travel and International Learning & Development (ILD) program areas have been closed while they underwent a review. This review has now been completed and the Board have decided to permanently close both the Travel and ILD program areas.
This round the Foundation awarded 71 grants totaling $7,368,221 in Community Wellbeing, Medical Research, Education, Science, Environment & Conservation, Travel and Conference. Grants were made to organisations from every state and territory.
The Board of The Ian Potter Foundation recently considered the future of the Conference and Travel program areas as part of its ongoing evaluation of all program areas. As a result of this process, The Ian Potter Foundation has decided to close its Conference program effective immediately and the Travel program will be suspended through 2019.
