Professional Development & Capability Building

We fund a broad range of organisations and activities as part of our LIFT fund. This fund is designed to support professional development within the non-profit sector – to help organisations and volunteers be equipped with the skills & knowledge to carry out their work as best they can. Here’s a snapshot of some of our LIFT grants:
