This is provided in the spirit of transparency and to assist grant seekers determine whether their work aligns with how VFFF works and the role it seeks to play as a grant maker. The final section details our application process. VFFF considers requests in two areas:

  • Thriving people and places
  • Christianity\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'è The challenge we perceive: Despite the best efforts of dedicated people, the social services system is not shifting the dial in places and within groups of people where disadvantage has persisted for decades. The opportunity we see: New ways of doing business are needed, working alongside those experiencing the challenges, so everyone in Australia can fully participate in education and work and build the thriving future they envisage.

  • Working together on new approaches
  • Learning & education
  • Jobs & economic development

official site Our approach

Aiming to maximise available funds, VFFF seeks to be catalytic with its grants and:

  • Direct its funds into the grassroots of communities, where the causes and opportunities for change lie
  • Support local people to drive the changes they want for their communities (community-led)
  • Connect local people with like-minded others who can support them achieve their goals
  • Enable communities and organisations to try & test new approaches to persistent issues
  • Make investments in organisations we believe in (rather than being project-driven)
  • Support organisations at critical times of transition or development
  • Support organisations that are unable to rely on high profile fundraising
  • Support cross-sector work and collaborations

binära optioner wikipedia Our assessment

We work closely with organisations and groups to understand their current position and future aspirations so we can provide the most useful support we can at the opportune time. In assessing funding opportunities, we consider;

  • Is there strong leadership? – ‘doing’ leaders with vision, action and tenacity – people who are making things happen and motivating others
  • Is the organisation in good health? – sound governance, effective operational systems and financially viable
  • Is the work proposed driven by demand? – there is evidence that the work proposed is relevant and important to the people who are meant to benefit from it, and that those people have or will be genuinely involved in its development
  • Is there a sound strategy? – the work proposed is a logical and practical response to the issue and local context, and there is evidence suggesting it will be effective in these circumstances
  • Is there capacity and experience to deliver the strategy effectively? – a deep understanding of the people you seek to work with, relevant specialist skills, you are trusted by the people you seek to work with
  • Are the desired outcomes clear and demonstrable? – clarity on what will be different as a result of the grant, and mechanisms to track outcomes as you go along, allowing refinement in real time
  • Are there other financial contributions? – or a sound plan to leverage VFFF support to obtain further funding Our grant profile

In the 2017 financial year:

  • 81% of applications to VFFF were approved
  • 78% of grants approved were multi-year commitments
  • Grants ranged from $20,000 to $515,000

  • 53% of grants approved were for core operations or organisational capacity building

In the 2018 financial year, we aim for 60% of our funding to go to regional areas and 65% to core operations and organisational capacity building.

VFFF provides support that falls under the following three categories: 1. Core operations
This refers to organisational and administrative costs such as salaries and overheads that maintain the everyday operation of an organisation. VFFF primarily makes core operations grants for small to medium-sized organisations at a critical time of transition or development.

e.g. For Generate Ministries to support the growth and sustainability of the Generate chaplaincy program in NSW public schools ($525,000 over three years).
Seed funding for CareerSeekers to establish the New Australian Internship Program. ($200,000 over three years). 2. Capacity Building
Capacity building grants aim to strengthen organisations by investing in core competencies such as business or operational planning, board development and governance, management capacity, staff training, leadership development and infrastructure. This support intends to enhance the ability of an organisation to operate more effectively beyond the conclusion of the grant.

e.g. For Bible Society Australia to employ specialist digital media skills to digitise the Eternity newspaper ($269,000 over two years).
e.g. To establish the Northern Inland Aged Care Alliance, a group of nine residential care providers from New England and Northern Rivers, aiming to build viable not for profit aged care services in regional NSW communities. ($50,000).

Tastylia (Tadalafil) Purchase 20 MG 3. Programs
