Our grant program

Our grant program

Good Things Foundation Australia offers a range of digital inclusion grants to support organisations to close the digital divide in their community.

Organisations must be members of our network to apply for our grants.

Be Connected program grants support older people (over 50's) in Australia to improve their digital skills, safety and confidence. There is a range of funding available to community organisations to support older people in their communities to embrace digital technology, including grants for digital skills program delivery, community events, digital mentor training and setting up loan digital device programs.

We also occasionally offer grant funding for other digital inclusion projects to reach more people impacted by the digital divide. These include digital health literacy grant funding and place-based pilot project funding for community organisations to deliver these essential programs to adults in their community.

Grants are available to organisations registered as part of Good Things Foundation Australia's national Be Connected Network.
