The Ian Potter Foundation makes grants across a broad range of sectors and endeavours. Our grants are managed through nine program areas: Arts, Community Wellbeing, Education, Environment & Conservation, Health & Disability, International Learning and Development, Medical Research, Science, Travel, and Conference.

The majority of our grants are made in response to applications and/or an expression-of-interest (EoI), although occasionally grants may be made in response to a need or opportunity pro-actively identified by the Foundation. The latter are usually major funding initiatives.

The Ian Potter Foundation rarely awards the full amount of any project. Please ensure that you have alternative providers of funding, and that your application clearly considers any possible grant from the Foundation in this context.


Application dates:
