COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding

What is the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding?

St. George Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding is a grant opportunity that will help approved charities who are experiencing immediate funding pressures as a result of COVID-19.



St.George Foundation provides grants to Australian charities to help improve the lives of children experiencing disadvantage.

This 2020, COVID-19 and natural disasters have placed many organisations in the charity sector under additional funding pressure; at a time when the most vulnerable members of our communities are in need of extra support.

St.George Foundation understand that organisations need to adapt and respond to the increased community needs and ever-changing environment. They are committed to helping you, and they are doing this by increasing their support to make more funding available.



St. George Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding is providing emergency payments of up to $5000 for approved charities.



To be eligible for funding your organisation will:

  • Have been funded by St.George Foundation in the past five calendar years.
  • Be endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (but not another ancillary fund). Deductible Gift Recipients must be listed with the Australian Taxation Office under Item 1 of the Table in Section 30–15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act, 1997; and
  • Be able to demonstrate an adverse impact as a result of COVID-19.

Funding through COVID-19 Emergency Relief Funding may be supported by St.George Foundation in NSW, QLD, WA, ACT or nationally, Bank of Melbourne Foundation in Victoria and BankSA Foundation in the Northern Territory or South Australia; collectively known as St.George Foundation.

St.George Foundation cannot give funding to individuals or organisations that are not eligible recipients.

Applying for funding or being an eligible applicant does not guarantee funding from St.George Foundation.



Applications open on an ongoing basis until otherwise notified.
