For organisations seeking grants

Do you have the right charitable and tax status in place to receive philanthropic funding? Most environmental grantmakers require an organisation to have deductible gift recipient status (DGR) before they can make a grant to them.

A smaller number only require charitable status.
The following resources will help you understand how to access charitable status and DGR status.

Charity Status

Applying for a grant

Where is the funding that could make your work a success and how do you make winning applications? Your time is valuable so it is important to be as strategic as possible.

There is a lot of competition for a limited amount of philanthropic funding.  You have greater chance of success if you only apply for grants your organisation is eligible for, and where you’ve made the effort to write a quality application for something that you really believe in.

The following resources will help you find available grants and the know-how to make an excellent application.
