The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation (EPCF) awards grants to charitable incorporated organisations and community groups on Eyre Peninsula.

The EPCF believes local charitable organisations, community groups and proactive and visionary individuals make a real difference to the development of our communities. The EPCF assesses and approves  grants of between $500 and $2000 to assist these groups give even better services in the future. The EPCF responds to new issues and initiatives as they arise and listens to unusual requests, particularly ideas for community projects that are normally not eligible for assistance from traditional funding programs.

The EPCF Grants Committee gives priority to locally run and led projects that use volunteers for most tasks, involve minority or disadvantaged groups, are innovative and demonstrate community collaboration, are focused on sustainable long term community development and capacity building, and demonstrate good operational and management practices. If your project satisfies at least some of those criteria, the EPCF encourages you to apply.

The 2019 community grant round is now open. Application deadline is 5 PM Friday 26th October 2019.

Full details and application forms can be obtained on the Foundation’s website at, via email to, or by calling 0400 685 520.
