Groundswell 2020 Project Grants
Groundswell is a new Giving Circle created in response to the climate crisis, accelerating action and supporting solutions by funding high-impact climate advocacy in Australia. This grant round offers funds to pay for specific climate advocacy projects carried out by people or organisations, such as an event, training, report, piece of polling, research or a communications tactic like advertising.
- $40,000 Major grant
- $10,000 Small grant
They are interested in funding organisations tackling the climate crisis who:
- Build the movement – activate new and strategic demographics or sectors to get involved in tackling the climate crisis;
- Shift the money – dry up the pipeline of funding to fossil fuel companies;
- Change the story – build urgency for stronger action from trusted voices in our community;
- Change the politics – enable greater leadership within state and federal Governments.
Grants can only be made to Deductible Gift Recipient 1 (DGR1) entities, or organisations that have a partnership agreement with a DGR1 entity.
Applications close on 12 October. Visit the website for more information or to apply.
