Grants SA

Grants SA provides over $3 million in grants annually to community organisations to improve community participation, wellbeing and quality of life for South Australians, particularly those who are experiencing disadvantage.

Through Grants SA, three one-off grant programs, the Charitable and Social Welfare Fund (Community Benefit SA), Multicultural Grants and Volunteer Grants, have been combined into a single application process.

Community organisations only have to apply once to be considered for funding across all program streams.

Funds will be distributed through major, medium and minor funding rounds. Major grant round of $20,001 to $50,000 will be open twice a year, medium grants of $5,001 to $20,000 will be open four times a year and minor grants of up to $5,000 will be open all year round and assessed at the end of every second month.

Organisations are eligible to be successful for a maximum of three grants per financial year.

Please read the following documents before applying for a grant:
