2020 Supplementary Volunteer Grant Opportunities

Applications are now closed. Applicants will be notified by 4 December 2020. 

The Australian Government has provided Volunteering WA with funding to administer a Supplementary Grants program to volunteer involving organisations. 

The purpose of the funding is to support the efforts of Western Australia's volunteers as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering by on-funding grants to provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers. 

The supplementary volunteer grants are designed to support volunteer involving organisations with a high proportion (over 40%) of volunteers to: 

  • Help support the efforts of Australia’s volunteers; 
  • Help support the inclusion of vulnerable people through volunteering; 
  • Encourage, support and increase participation in volunteering; 
  • Post COVID-19 re-engagement activities for volunteers; and 
  • Adapting practices to support volunteers safety in relation to COVID-19 

The intended outcome of the grants is to strengthen community functioning by increasing participation in volunteering.
