The Working Together More Fund supports collaborations and mergers that bring long-term benefits to non-profit organisations and the communities they serve.

To be eligible, applications need to meet the following criteria:

  • The lead applicant must be a non-profit legal entity registered with the Charities Service or as an Incorporated Society
  • At least one other non-profit partner organisation or group is, or will be, involved in the initiative
  • Participants are able to demonstrate how they will accomplish high-quality collaboration – see best practice indicators for collaboration in the ‘guidance’ tab
  • The collaborative initiative or merger will result in identifiable benefits to participating organisations or groups and the communities they serve
  • Grants will not be approved for political organisations, overseas-based groups, groups involved in promoting religion or for overseas travel.

Your initiative needs to reflect best practice collaboration as outlined in the ‘guidance’ tab.
