Granting Deep Dive
Most grants were distributed via FRRR’s core grant programs and around a quarter were through our donor-advised Giving Sub-Funds, which support either a particular region or address a particular issue. Once again, FRRR’s flagship program – Strengthening Rural Communities (SRC) – had the largest number of distributions, supporting 361 projects with nearly $4.2 million in grants.
Connecting and supporting communities
FRRR offers more than money to community groups, spending time building capacity in communities. While COVID affected our ability to engage face-to-face in communities for much of this year, we stayed connected through online grantseeker workshops and regular phone calls and emails. When restrictions lifted in between lockdowns, the team took every opportunity we could to get back to community, in person. We managed to visit every state at least once, aside from the NT which is on the agenda for FY23.
