Grants

How to Apply for a Grant

We make grants to serving members of the Royal Australian Regiment and to their immediate families to alleviate hardship and/or provide assistance to those in need.  We also provide funding for Regimental activities and initiatives that meet the fundamental tenets and objects of the Foundation’s constitution.  We only make financial grants, not gifts or loans.  All grant applications must be processed through and be recommended by the Battalion’s Commanding Officer.  The application format should be a simple letter or e-mail stating the case to be supported, amount requested and urgency of the need.

Urgent cases will be dealt with instantly, delegations are held by the Secretary and President to enable rapid decisions and the provision of advice to Commanding Officers.
