Types of Grants

The Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation 2016/2017 Responsive Grants Program is arranged into four key grant types: Innovation (includes both Innovation Grants and Exploration Grants), Thrive, Feed Melbourne, and the Eldon and Anne Foote Donor Advised Program.

The Foundation also makes Signature and Proactive Grants. These are initiated by the Foundation to respond to specific issues of particular interest or concern to the Foundation and form part of our new Catalytic Grants Program.

Before applying for a responsive grant please ensure that you are familiar with the Foundation’s funding principles and confirm your organisation’s eligibility.
