If your organisation or group is not incorporated and you wish to apply for an Annual Community Strengthening Grant over $1,000, you will need an incorporated association to act as your auspice.
You can read more about auspicing on Not-for-profit Law's website.
If your application is successful, the auspicing organisation will need to sign the Funding Agreement and the funds will be paid to the auspicing organisation. They will then administer the funding for your project.
Please note that auspice fees will not be funded and must not be included in your budget.
Auspiced organisations are also required to list any additional in-kind support provided by the auspicing organisation in the project budget.
