FAQ applying for funding

How do I apply for funding?

Email us at info@acfoundation.org.au or call the Foundation Manager on 0438 450 412 to discuss your proposal. If your proposal meets all the criteria, we will email or post you an Application Form.

How can I find out if my organisation has Deductible Gift Recipient Type 1 (DGR1) status?

Your tax status can be found by inputting your ABN into the ABN Lookup tool on the Australian Business Register.

What geographical area does the Anangu Communities Foundation cover?

The Anangu Communities Foundation covers the Anangu communities of Mutitjulu, Docker River, Kaltukatjara, Watarrka, Imanpa, and others in the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) region in central Australia.

How are funding applications assessed?

Applications are assessed against each of the criteria. The Foundation relies on fundraising and donations – the amount approved will be dependent on the available budget. The Anangu Communities Foundation Board reviews all applications and decides which applications are approved.
