As a trustee of over 230 charitable foundations, ANZ Trustees has the discretion as to amounts and recipients of philanthropic funds. Prior to exercising that discretion, ANZ Trustees seeks to understand community needs, what charities do and how funds can create the greatest benefit.
Annually the charitable funds managed by ANZ Trustees generate around $70 million for charitable distribution and make grants to over 1600 Australian charities and not-for-profit organisations.The size of grants can range from $1,000 to $5.7 million, and each grant program has its own guidelines and closing date for applications. A range of grant programs are available from educational, medical to indigenous and more. We prefer to help charities that approach social problems in smart, contemporary and creative ways.
As you would appreciate, the community need for charitable money is always greater than the funds available. Most grants programs are competitive merit-based programs and awarded to projects that best match the grant guidelines and are assessed as likely to have the most positive social impact. Some grant programs are by invitation only.
