At its latest meeting, the Board of The Ian Potter Foundation approved grants for a range of exciting projects across many program areas. At this meeting, the Board also considered proposed new funding guidelines that will ensure our future grantmaking remains firmly linked to the four elements of the Foundation’s vision for a vibrant, healthy, fair and sustainable Australia.
Craig Connelly shares the news of the Board's decision to add a fourth element to the vision of The Ian Potter Foundation. He also explains the reasoning behind this and what comes next for the Foundation.
The Ian Potter Foundation has always proactively sought partnerships with not-for-profit organisations. This year has been no different with several new partnerships established through major grants awarded to organisations supporting Indigenous communities and people at risk of homelessness.
It’s been a busy few months since our last newsletter. The program management team and I have recently undertaken a week-long scoping trip to the Northern Territory visiting Alice Springs and Darwin. The latest funding round saw grants made to organisations in every state and territory.
