Grants: The Hamer Sprout Fund

Each year, the Hamer Sprout Fund will consider applications from organisations that share the fund’s goals. It is particularly interested in giving to smaller organisations and projects to get them off the ground.

It aims to support projects and organisations that:

  • Promote innovation in environmental education
  • Facilitate engagement in environmental action
  • Advocate for environmental sustainability
  • Foster collaboration between young people engaged in environmental leadership

Funds for the Sprout Grants are raised through the fundraising activities of the Hamer Sprout Fund and the Hamer Family Fund. A total of $25,000 is available for the Sprout Grants each year. Up to $5,000 is available per project, however more (up to $10,000) may be awarded in exceptional circumstances.

Groups or individuals may submit more than one application if they have a number of eligible projects.

Applications close on 30 September each year. Find out more or apply.
