The Small Grants Program invests in small to medium sized grass roots initiatives and organisations that empower local communities to thrive.

Our approach is to reduce the administration burden by building efficiencies into the way we facilitate and assess grant rounds. We do this by seeking one application that is considered across multiple, aligned Trusts managed by Equity Trustees..
