Social Enterprise Grants to fund businesses with a mission

31 Oct 2019

Queensland social entrepreneurs are set to receive a booster shot.

The Queensland Government’s Social Enterprise Grants Program will provide between $5000 to $50,000 to social enterprises, enabling access to professional advice and support in the critical early stages of establishing and growing a business, and to assist in testing ideas in the market or using technology to achieve reach and mission.

Social enterprises can be non-profit, for-profit or hybrid businesses that exist to benefit the public and community and are established to address a range of cultural, social and environmental issues.

To be eligible for a grant, social enterprises must be based in Queensland and:

  • be led by an economic, social, cultural or environmental mission consistent with a public or community benefit
  • trade to fulfil their mission and derive more than 50% of their income from trade, and
  • reinvest the majority of any profit or surplus into the fulfilment of their mission.

For full eligibility guidelines, terms and conditions visit the program’s website.

Grant applications close Monday 2 December 2019.
