Here are links to community grants programs that Greater Dandenong non-profit groups can apply for:
Contact your local Victorian Member of Parliament (MP)
Scanlon Foundation Community Grants. Mainly focused on women and multicultural communities.
Generally, these things are assessed:
- What is the community benefit?
- How many people does the organisation support?
- How much capacity do you have to raise funds through other means?
- Have you gained funding in previous rounds?
I recommend you have one A4 page that summaries along the lines of Who, What, Why, Where, How.
