- TCC – Tax Concession Charity status
- DGR – Deductible Gift Recipient Item 1 of the table in Section 30-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act (1997)
To confirm you are eligible for an ACF grant, please search the Australian Business Register using your organisation’s name or ABN to see whether it is endorsed as an Item 1 DGR and TCC organisation.
If you hold the correct ATO endorsements, you can email a Funding Proposal to email@example.com.
The Grants Team reviews funding proposals weekly. If eligible the proposal will be flagged for inclusion in a donor newsletter. Organisations will only be notified if their proposal is not eligible (i.e. they do not hold the appropriate ATO endorsements) or if a donor expresses interest in their proposal.
Due to the high volume of requests we are only able to accept two funding requests per calendar year.
Organisations that have been nominated to receive a grant will be contacted by the ACF Grants Team to carry out further due diligence and to collect information such as bank details. Funding Request nominations are then prepared for approval by the Grants Committee.
Once a grant payment has been approved by the ACF Grants Committee, the successful organisation will receive a letter of offer from ACF. ACF distributes all grants by electronic funds transfer.
Note, grants over $5,000 made to specific projects are required to sign a Grant Agreement. The Grant Agreement will be issued with the letter of offer and must be returned with a receipt within 30 days.
