The Grace Gives Program

At Grace, we recognise that if not for our local communities, we would not have grown as we have over the years, so each year Grace undertakes a range of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives to support and maintain that community connection throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The year 2016 saw the launch of the Grace Gives grants program, which is our way of giving back to the communities that support us. More than 100,000 people voted to select the finalists, showing just how important this initiative is to the community and the groups it supports.

In 2020 we have decided to increase our Grace Gives grants to $5,000. This year, we will award three groups a combined $15,000 and we look forward to seeing how these communities grow and come together in even greater ways this year.

How does it work?

During our application dates, community groups, registered charities and not-for-profit organisations will have the opportunity to apply, detailing how they plan to help their community with a $5,000 grant.

Once all applications have been submitted and approved by Grace, the public will be able to vote for the organisations and causes they feel most passionate about.

At the end of the public voting period, the six organisations with the greatest number of votes will progress to the final round where the Grace selection panel will select the three recipients for a 2020 Grace Gives grant.

Full terms and conditions can be found here.

 

URGENT UPDATE:

The 2020 Grace Gives program has commenced and applications have now closed following an overwhelming response.  However, due to the unprecedentED public health crisis arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grace Gives has been placed in hiatus until further notice.   We apologise for the disruption and we will advise all applicants in due course when the next phase of this program will re-commence (opening of votes).  We encourage you to adhere to all medical advice at this time during this serious global pandemic outbreak.
