The Gladstone Foundation was established as a perpetual trust in February 2011. The purpose of the Gladstone Foundation, as set out in the Trust Deed, is to provide a structured approach to allocate funding that contributes to addressing the social infrastructure needs of the people of the Gladstone region.
The Gladstone Foundation will work with people and organisations in Gladstone to fulfil this responsibility. All projects funded by the Gladstone Foundation will possess a common thread of improved social infrastructure and/or tackling social disadvantage as realistically as circumstances dictate.
The first grant round of 2018 will be conducted in two stages; first, an expression of interest in which projects can be canvassed and short-listed and second, where shortlisted projects must provide more detailed information on their project, its finances and its implementation. Organisations should ensure they review the Gladstone Foundation’s funding criteria before submitting an expression of interest (EOI). The EOI Form is available here.
