Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its Thrive Grants.

The Thrive Grants Program acknowledges the importance of smaller, grass-roots charitable organisations and supports their organisational capacity building.
 
The multi-year grants dispersed total $1.2 million and have been provided to enhance the leadership, management, operational or change management capacity of charitable organisations to demonstrably improve their ability to achieve their mission.
 
The 2017/2018 Thrive Grant Round will open later this year.
