what is the $10K project grant?

Our $10K Project Grant is an opportunity to receive $10,000 worth of support to deliver your upcoming project or initiative – whatever it may be. We want to help you make a positive impact, improve people’s lives or move the world forward in some way. If you have an amazing project that could benefit from brand and marketing attention, we want to know about it and how it will make a difference. Ultimately, the grant supports you to realise a great idea or positive initiative for your company or organisation.

Who can apply for the grant?

Anyone! The grant is open to ANY company, organisation or school that has a project or initiative that will have a positive impact – either for people, a community or the environment.

What can the grant be used for?

The $10K grant is redeemable for delivery of a project*, in partnership with Mezzanine, up to the value of $10,000 in:

  • Brand Identity and Storytelling
  • Design, Digital and Video
  • Marketing and Campaigns
  • Content Creation and Publishing
  • Conscious Communications and Copywriting

Whatever you need to get your project off the ground, you’ll have industry experts by your side helping to make it happen. Our team is passionate about using our knowledge and skills to help organisations to make a positive difference and we have over two decades of experience in this space. We love what we do and we know you love what you do as well, so the purpose of this grant is to bring us together to empower ideas and initiatives that are good for the world to be realised.

What kind of projects can the $10K grant be used for?

There are so many projects and initiatives we’re proud to have supported in various ways over the years. This year we decided to create this official grant so we could spread the love to more organisations. To help as a guide, here are just a few examples of the kinds of projects this grant could support:

  • Helping to launch Canteen’s ‘Side of Stage’ – which offers free access to live gigs, festivals and performances for young people impacted by cancer.
  • Building a website for the incredible charity, Fitted for Work, a community-based organisation on a mission to empower disadvantaged women by assisting them to achieve economic independence.
  • Helping the New River’s Leadership team design and publish their book, Rethinking Leadership: Building Capacity for Positive Change (2017). New River’s Leadership is an educational organisation focused on leadership capacity building.
  • Building an identity and launching Unconquered, a fundraising initiative for delivering sanitary products to women in India.
  • Designing a beautiful magazine for Compassion Australia – a child development and child advocacy organisation to assist children living in extreme poverty around the world.

FAQ

Is there any expectation to spend more than $10k?

No, not at all. An entire project could be covered by the Grant.

Does the project need to be 'new'?

No. It does not need to be ‘new’, it could be new, but it’s also ok if it’s something existing or half completed.

Is the grant to spend on Mezzanine services only?

Yes.

It includes services such as developing your Brand Identity and Storytelling, Design, Digital and Video, Marketing and Campaigns, Content Creation and Publishing, Conscious Communications and Copywriting, but excludes brand or marketing strategy, consulting, stock imagery, printing or production costs.
