The June Canavan Foundation open for ongoing applications – next round closes 1 Aug 2017 – multiple regions including International

The June Canavan Foundation (JCF) has a preference for projects that create sustainable outcomes and allow people to help themselves in accordance with the principle of ‘a hand up, not a hand out’.

The focus areas for The June Canavan Foundation are:

  • Sport
  • Education
  • Health
  • Conservation

The JCF can also play a valuable role in growing the philanthropic sector, and in being a model and inspiration for other small to medium scale foundations. One way of doing this is to support Philanthropy Australia as the peak body in the sector to enable it to fulfil its mission. On this basis, they recently added a fifth focus area:

  • Capacity building in the philanthropic and not for profit sectors.

The following descriptions are indicative of where the June Canavan Foundation would like to fund, although not all may be funded during any one year.

The Foundation will support projects within Australia in the regions of the Sunshine Coast and North East Victoria.  Occasionally it may be relevant to provide support to projects which have a nation-wide impact.

Internationally, the Foundation will support projects in the regions of East Africa, Papua New Guinea and the near Asia-Pacific.
