Project Activate

Project Activate allows local leaders to bring their ideas to life to create sustainable, resilient communities.

FRRR often receives many applications from remote, rural and regional communities that we can’t support, simply because we don’t have the funds.

In many cases, these projects are funding-ready. Rather than simply decline these potentially community changing projects, we’ve launched Project Activate to showcase a number of these projects and hopefully help them get the funding they need.

The projects below have been developed by not-for-profit organisations across Australia, many of them volunteer run, and will help to create a more vibrant, resilient community.

Through Project Activate, an individual donor, a philanthropic trust, a PAF, a PUAF or a small or large business can make a donation to FRRR, with a preference to support one of these funding-ready, community-led projects. Each one has been assessed by FRRR’s staff and pre-approved by our Board.

The total donation amount that you give will include FRRR’s Delivery and Engagement Fee that is equivalent to 20% of the funds required for the community organisation’s project. This fee supports the work of FRRR in overall grant management including community engagement, grant assessment, all administration, grantee advice & management for the life of the project, and finally reporting the impact of the donation back to you, the donor.

As FRRR is covered by Subdivision 30-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 and listed as a recipient for deductible gifts under Section 30-105, you can donate to FRRR and receive a tax deduction in Australia.

Round 1 of Project Activate is now closed. FRRR is currently assessing applications and will share news when we have new grant-ready projects to present for your direct support.
