  • We believe we are one of the largest Charitable Foundations based in regional Australia

The purpose of the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation is to provide grant funding for eligible not-for profit organisations and community groups to enable these organisations to deliver important projects, initiatives and programs that address issues of disadvantage in regard to health, social wellbeing and young people.

More specifically, the Foundation funds projects aimed at improving community health and well-being for those most in need, improving life outcomes for disadvantaged and at-risk young people, and improving the social wellbeing of the marginalised and isolated in our community.

Each year, we distribute over $1.5 million in grant funding to eligible organisations across the Hunter, Central Coast, Central West, Mid North Coast, New England and the Northern Rivers areas of New South Wales.

We offer eligible organisations two opportunities to apply for grant funding each year, generally in April and October.
