Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week Grants

Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week is a three-year initiative that was launched in 2015 to celebrate how partnerships between grassroots community groups and philanthropy can help build strong and vibrant places to live and work. It is supported through the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership and managed by Philanthropy Australia in partnership with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.

Each year the program culminates in a week-long celebration of what has been achieved around Australia thanks to strong partnerships between community organisations and those that support and work with them, whether they are philanthropic trusts and foundations, businesses, or individuals.

In 2017, Community and Philanthropy Partnerships Week (CPPW) will be held between 20 and 26 November with the theme of building stronger communities together.

CPPW is a chance for community groups and philanthropic partners to showcase and promote the great work they are already doing across Australia. It is also an opportunity to share knowledge and best practice, and to strengthen or develop new relationships and partnerships.

In addition to providing grants of up to $10,000, the program has a dedicated website, including resources and toolkits, that showcases and celebrates community and philanthropic partnerships. A register of activities across Australia during CPPW is hosted online to capture the celebratory events each year.

In 2017, a total of $160,000 is available in grants of up to $10,000 for projects that celebrate, profile and share the outcomes of existing or past community and philanthropy partnerships – projects whose main aim is to fundraise or attract new partners are not eligible for support. The projects should bring to life this year’s theme of building stronger communities together. Successful applicants would receive funds in August 2017 and projects will need to be completed within five months, with at least some part of the funded project taking place during CPPW in November 2017.

For the purposes of this program, a partnership is an arrangement where all parties involved work together, sharing knowledge and resources and working toward common outcomes and impacts that all parties want to achieve for the social and economic benefit of the community. A strong partnership is one that is collaborative, has clearly defined goals and objectives, and shared roles, responsibilities and resources.
