Grant Round 5 is now closed.

Important information on how to apply with Tas Christian Fund:

Before you apply you’ll need to speak to one of our grants administrators. 

Having noted that the most successful applicants in the past are the ones who have discussed their ideas with us before submitting their application, we have now made it a requirement that every applicant must speak with a grants administrator first.

Contact Nathaniel or Laura on 6128 3005, or info@taschristianfund.com.

Once you have talked through your application the grants administrators will forward you access to our online grant application and the information you need to get started.

 Please note: this year’s form is to be completed online, and can’t be downloaded as in previous grant rounds. 

Please read these grant guidelines below thoroughly. 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 the end of  June 2019.

When do I need to get my Application in by?
Applications need to be submitted by 5pm Friday the 29th of March.

 

How is your Grant Application assessed?

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

Location Will this project be undertaken in Tasmania?
Outreach Is the project primarily evangelistic?
Charitable Status Does the sponsoring organisation have Tax Charitable Concession (TCC) status?
Reporting Will the organisers report back after the project?

Projects demonstrating that they meet all of these four mandatory criteria will continue to a second stage of assessment, which rates applications using the following six suitability criteria:

  1. Need – Does this project meet a genuine and substantial unmet evangelistic need?
  2. Growth – Is this a new project or one that will grow an existing project to a new level?
  3. Plan – Is the plan well thought out, and the team likely to succeed?
  4. Outcomes – Does the project have specific, tangible, measurable outcomes?
  5. Impact  Does the project deliver a high ‘return on investment’ given the funds requested?
  6. Partnership – Are other people/organisations assisting with funds, gifts in-kind, or volunteer time?

Please note that the Tasmanian Christian Fund does not fund building purchases, major works renovations, or the production of training resources.

Lower preference will also be given to church projects that could be self-funded.
