Do you have a great idea for a project to engage the Tasmanian community but just can’t find the money? Have a look at the Bellendena Small Grants Scheme and see if it works for you.
The scheme has been established to provide grants up to $5000 for projects mostly undertaken in Tasmania, Australia. Like Bellendena montana, the endemic Tasmanian alpine wildflower after which it is named, the scheme is small yet adds beauty and diversity, making our world a better place.
Bellendena looks for projects that find it difficult to access funding. We are particularly interested in helping to fund indigenous projects, arts and culture, asylum seekers and refugees, and community development in general.
Bellendena is simple. The application form is straightforward and short, but we do ask for a one page final report. Funding decisions will be made very promptly. Please include your best itemised estimate of your costs. Requests for the maximum amount must be convincingly justified. If we are interested, we will probably want to meet to discuss it – but we don’t want to take up any more of anyone’s time than is necessary.
So, if you want a small amount of money for something worthwhile and you don’t want to spend the next week applying for it, give this a try! If it doesn’t seem to be for you, you could also try the 2A4 Small Grants Scheme at http://2a4.org. If you identify as a woman or non-binary you can try Thrive Women’s Grants at http://thrivewomensgrants.org.
