Up to $40,000 in funding is available to LGBTI community organisations in the Aurora Group’s latest round of small grants. The Aurora Group wants eligible community organisations to apply for its 2012 Small Grants of up to $5,000 each.

Applications for the grant funding are now open and close at 5pm on Friday, October 19 2012.

Last year’s recipients included JOY 94.9 program The Commitment Project; The Gender Centre program Transtopia; The Benevolent Society program Fostering Young Lives; Regional Youth Support Service GenQ; Queer Screen Community Screen Content Initiative and ACON’s Lesbian & Gay Anti-Violence Project.

Interested community members can support Aurora by joining its regular giving program or making a one-off donation. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, and 100 percent goes to the charities and projects that Aurora supports.
