What We Fund

The John T Reid Charitable Trusts distributes funding within six main categories.  Many projects will fall within more than one category of support; we encourage each applicant to present their proposal in their own words as it best promotes their needs rather than try to fit within a rigid category.

Within these categories, the Trustees will consider supporting creative and innovative programs and projects, and capital works to further the aims of the organisation. Support may be given to an organisation in establishing projects in their early stages, expecting that they will seek and attract wider community and government partnerships for future support.

The Trusts provide funding to not-for-profit organisations who are endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient from the Australian Tax Office, however enquiries will not be accepted from the development office of Universities or from individual researchers.

We consider carefully the most effective way to provide funding within each sector, and strongly encourage collaboration and communication between organisations. In approving grants, we like to balance the funding between rural, regional and urban projects.

We encourage you to read our recent Publications to read about some of our recently funded projects.
