MyState Bank Foundation launches community grants

MyState Bank Foundation, together with women’s employment advocate, Dress for Success has launched the MyState Foundation Community Grants for 2024. 

Applications for the 2024 MyState Foundation Grants are now open to Tasmanian charitable organisations to help to build a brighter future for young Tasmanians.
 
There are grants ranging from $1000 to $10,000 up for grabs this year plus the introduction of two major community partnerships of up to $50,000 each for youth programs focused on education and social connection.

MyState General Manager of People and Community, Janelle Whittle says the community grants have been supporting organisations that help young Tasmanians reach their full potential since 2001.
“Through the Foundation, we have provided millions of dollars in grants to organisations that are making a genuine difference to young Tasmanians and helping them to reach their full potential.”

 “Local organisations understand what is needed and have the experience to support young people in need and have the biggest impact.”
Over the past 23 years, the Foundation has awarded more than $2.69 million in grants to 145 Tasmanian not-for-profit organisations, supporting over 360 initiatives and more than 120,000 individuals across the state.

Dress for Success has been a recipient of a MyState Foundation grant and CEO Amanda French says the grant helped the organisation achieve its goals. 

“Women who come to Dress for Success are really dressed from the inside out and this type of financial support helps us provide programs to build inner confidence and self-esteem for women looking to re-enter the workforce.”
“Workforce participation is one of the greatest drivers for allowing women to make their own choices and have control over their economic future.”
“Dress for Success helps empower women with choices, ultimately helping them obtain financial freedom through employment. One hour at Dress for Success provides them with clothing to get hired and importantly, helps them regain their confidence with resources and tools to take control of their own future”
The MyState Foundation grant applications will close on May 12.

To apply, you must be an incorporated Tasmanian not-for-profit with Deductible Gift Recipient status. Successful applicants will be announced in June. More detail: https://mystate.com.au/about-us/community/mystate-foundation
