About the Collaboration

Canberra Foundations Collaborative is a partnership between local community foundations: Hands Across Canberra, the Snow Foundation, and the John James Foundation.

Each year the Foundations run a major grant round in Spring and collaborate, share knowledge and co-fund. In 2022, the collaborative piloted a major shared grant round to simplify the application process for organisations who already have limited resources for grant writing.

Each Foundation contributed equally to funding $1.5 million of community projects.
