The Mercy Foundation provides grants for a range of social justice and community initiatives as well as for services, projects and research that will contribute to the goal of ending homelessness.
Grants to End Homelessness
Grants to End Homelessness provide seed funding for initiatives that will contribute to the goal of ending homelessness in Australia by supporting housing first and permanent supportive housing solutions.
Interested organisations are invited to call the Mercy Foundation to discuss their project. If the project meets the criteria, the Mercy Foundation will provide a number for you to insert on the front page of the EOI form. The EOI form is in the Grants section of this website. EOIs are assessed by the Grants Committee and successful organisations will be invited to submit a full Application and Proposal form.
Funding under this program is up to $50,000.
Social Justice Small Grants
Social Justice Small Grants provides seed funding to assist communities and organisations to build capacity that will help create structural change and bring about greater social equity in Australia.
The Mercy Foundation prioritises projects that work with disadvantaged women and women with children.
Grants up to $10,000 are available for this program.
Each grant program opens once per year.
