About Get Online Week
Get Online Week is an annual digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation. Last year, 500+ community organisations around Australia held a Get Online Week event grant, helping people with limited digital skills learn something new online.
This year Get Online Week will be held 16 - 22 October 2023.
Get Online Week grants help you get involved
The grant supports community organisations to host fun digital skills events during Get Online Week, promote their digital inclusion program and reach new people. Grant funding can be spent on marketing, learning resources, catering, venue hire, staff and volunteer expenses, and event costs.
Get Online Week event grants are offered by Good Things Foundation through the Be Connected program.
Host a fun and engaging event
Get Online Week grants support community organisations to host creative, fun and engaging digital skills events in their local community.
Each event is different. During Get Online Week, people have learnt how to find YouTube tutorials about their favourite craft, gone on a QR code treasure hunt, and even holidayed from their armchair!

Surat Library hosted a Get Online Week event by playing a classic game with a creative new digital twist. Combining the rules of bingo with the song-identifying phone app Shazam, attendees raced to name songs using their devices.
Prior to their musical bingo event, attendees were shown how to access and use music streaming apps. Since then, attendees have been using their new skills to stream and listen to music online at home.
