AustralianBouldering.Com Grants Program
The AustralianBouldering.Com Grants Program funds projects that;
promote bouldering in Australia,
promote bouldering by Australians, or,
enhance opportunities for bouldering in Australia.
You (or your organisation) can join the program in one of two ways; as an applicant for funding, or as a partner making a contribution. For a list of the current program partners and their level of participation please go to the Partners page. For a list of the latest recipients of funding and their amount please go to the Recipients page.
Hopefully in this first round of funding in excess of $5,000 will be dispersed to successful applicants at a maximum amount of $500 per applicant and 50% of the project budget. However, the average allocation is likely to be less than $200 to ensure we support as many of the applicants as possible. Only the highest quality (and budget) applicants would/could receive the maximum amount of $500.
We fund projects that meet the following criteria:
Suggested grant applications (in no specific order):
Competition participation- Towards transport, accommodation, entry fees etc for local, interstate and overseas bouldering competitions.
Film financing- Towards production, marketing and distribution costs.
Article financing- Towards research and production of published bouldering articles.
Area clean-up- Towards equipment hire costs for trail maintenance, rubbish removal, chalk removal etc.
New area development- Towards transport, accommodation etc to develop a (preferably non-local) bouldering area.
Road/Overseas trip- Towards transport, accommodation etc to boulder “ambassadorially” interstate or overseas.
Home woodie - Towards construction and fit-out etc of a home woodie if you’re not near a gym or bouldering area.
Guide production - Towards printing, graphic design etc of bouldering guides.
Other ?... We are pretty much open to funding anything that matches the above funding criteria and would like to hear about your proposal so send it in.
