Who we fund

Our funding priorities are divided into three broad categories:

1. Early Childhood Education and Care: we strive to award grants to high quality early childhood education and care environments that meet family needs at home and in the community


2. Family Strengthening and Community Building: we aim to support charities that encourage the mental, physical and social health of members of families and communities.

3. Sports, Play, Recreation and Community Enhancement Projects: we support organizations that build strong, resilient places to work, live and play.
