NAB Foundation Community Grants are open to charities that are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for Profits Commission (ACNC). They are also open to those that hold an Australian Business Number and have charitable purpose, such as a social enterprise (not-for-profit and for-profit) or start- ups with social and/or environmental impact at the core of their business. Your organization does not need to have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
If your organization is not a registered charity or social enterprise with the ACNC, it must have documentation that demonstrates its charitable purpose. You’ll be asked to upload this in the application form.
They can only provide grants to support an organization’s project, program or initiative that has a charitable purpose and is clearly aligned to the stated aims of the NAB Foundation Community Grants program.
NAB Foundation recognizes that their community investments can contribute to broader global movements, both in their grant making and partnerships. They therefore will look favorably on applications that align the outcomes of their project, program or initiative with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. There is an optional question in the application about alignment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The NAB Foundation intends to prioritize funding for smaller organizations with an income of $3 million or less per annum, and organizations who receive less than 40% of their annual funding from government.
