What should we consider when requesting a grant from the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust?

Requests for funding must have:

  • a budget outlining the costs of the project
  • goals and deliverables that are clearly linked to the aims of the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust
  • endorsement from a reputable organisation within the Chinese poll tax descendant community
  • evidence that proposal and the organisation you belong to is not-for-profit
  • a letter of support from a referee who can verify the community benefits of your project
  • a declaration of any other funding that has been provided for your project

If funding of more than $5,000 is sought, applications will need to show:

  • evidence of the financial and technical viability of the proposal
  • that funding sought is not the responsibility of central or local government
  • that the proposal does not seek funding for things already funded by central or local government through other channels
  • evidence of other fundraising activities - larger projects need to show support from other sources.

If seeking more than $10,000 a copy of a feasibility study or a business or strategic plan must be provided.
