Please read these grant guidelines below thoroughly before applying.  The grant guidelines include important information about these grants including what you can use the grant for and the criteria used to assess your application.

When will I know if I’ve been successful?
All applications will be assessed by Tasmanian Christian Fund, and you will be notified of the outcome of your application by 12th of May 2017.

When do I need to get my application in by?
Applications need to be submitted by 5pm Friday the 21st of April.

How is your grant application assessed?

Applications are assessed in two stages. Our first stage of assessment involves four mandatory criteria.

Location Is this a local Tasmanian project?
Intent Is the focus on evangelism and outreach?
Charitable Status Does the project have Charitable (TCC) status?
Reporting Will the project report back against clear objectives?

Projects demonstrating that they meet these four criteria will continue to a second stage of assessment by the TCF board.

The second stage of assessment uses an additional five criteria to determine a project’s suitability for grant funding.

  1. Necessity – Have you identified a genuine and substantial unmet evangelistic need in the community?
  1. Initiative – Is this a new initiative, or an important addition to grow an existing project to new levels?
  1. Outcomes – Does the project have specific measurable outcomes?
  1. Delivery – Have you got a clear and complete plan of how to achieve your project goals?
  1. Partnership – Are others partnered with you in this project, either financially or through volunteering their time and skills?
