Outcome of Grant Applicants
The Foundation acknowledges the extraordinarily challenging circumstances FY21 presented for each of us, and the disruption the sector experienced as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Foundation wishes to commend all grant applicants on the important work they do and the positive impact it they have on the communities that they serve and Victoria more broadly.
With reduced funding capacity in FY21, the Foundation distributed:
- 8 grant applications received funding via the Performing Arts stream. No grant applications received their full funding request.
- 4 Medical Services applicants received funding. 3 applicants received full funding request.
- 3 grant applicants had not received funding from the foundation previously.
All applicants were advised of the outcome of their applications by end of May/early June, with funding distributed before 30 June 2021.

Decision making process
The following themes and considerations influenced the Advisory Committee when considering the FY21 portfolio of funding partners:
Medical Service Delivery and Research
- All areas of medical service delivery and research, including conditions of the eye.
- Readiness of implementation of capital/infrastructure projects and research initiatives, in particular, in regional parts of Victoria.
- Demonstration of agile delivery, if required in the context of COVID-19 (i.e. digital adaption of initiative). However, inperson delivery was highly considered in their merit to encourage artists in the return of a new sense of normalcy.
- A preference for supporting early access to development and appreciation for performing arts.
- The grant provided by the Foundation to the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne (ADOM) was distributed to 29 parishes via the ADOM’s decision-making process. Through the Foundation’s grant, ADOM were able to allocate funds to projects that supported direct relief services, family, children and youth services, chaplaincy training and asylum seeker support.
