Small Grants Program
GALFA initiated its Small Grants Program in 2017, and has set aside $4,000 to be allocated to a maximum of 8 x $500 small grants during 2017 (or greater number of grants less than $500 may be made).
- 4 x $500 grants to be allocated in response to a public call for applications, and
- 4 x $500 grants (or up to $500) to be set aside for quick response grants in response to ad hoc applications (out of time).
The Gay and Lesbian Foundation of Australia (GALFA) raises and distributes funds for activities that benefit lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTIQ) people, and allied communities, in Australia. GALFA is Australia’s peak LGBTIQ philanthropic organisation.
This small grants program aims to support LGBTIQ individuals and or organisations and communities who would otherwise be limited by the constraints of other funding programs. It is intended directly or indirectly to assist, involve and benefit LGBTIQ members and promote positive social outcomes and mental health in the community.
Issues of LGBTIQ discrimination, disadvantage and need are little-addressed by other philanthropic organisations. With individual contributions and co-funding from like-minded organisations, GALFA supports underfunded and important LGBTIQ projects that make a difference in our community.
