2020 MyState Foundation Grant Application Guidelines
Thanks for your interest in applying for a MyState Foundation grant. We give Tasmanian youth a hand by providing accessible grants for community groups. We believe it’s the little ideas & local organisations like you that help make a big difference in people’s lives and help build a richer Tasmanian community.
Please note: Annual grants of up to $10,000 may be extended to groups who can strongly demonstrate that the youth of Tasmania will benefit greatly from this level of capital injection into their program or project. Multi-year grants are also available for up to $10,000 per year, for a maximum period of two years.
There is no doubt we have all been affected by the current COVID-19 global pandemic. The impact this virus has had on the world has been unprecedented. We understand that this year will present a number of challenges, and is likely to change the way you run your programs. Charitable organisations have had to quickly change & adapt to the current climate to continue to provide vital services to Tasmanian youth.
As part of your application, can you please put some consideration into how you could continue to run your program if the social distancing regulations continue for the foreseeable future. This is a difficult time, and we want to be able to continue our vision to provide support and assistance to programs and initiatives that make a genuine difference to the lives of young Tasmanians.
Please read the below guidelines before proceeding to the next page of your online grant application. This will determine if your organisation and project is eligible for funding.
