CAGES Foundations

2018/2019 Enquiry form now open 

If you think CAGES Foundation objectives are a good fit with your organisation please contact us via our enquiry form. We have both a primary funding stream and community grants which will be available in 2019. Our primary funding stream considers long-term opportunities for community led initiatives which have the potential to create systemic change. Our community grants are for Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations only. It is focussed on providing an injection for one-off activities (for example to build on existing assets in your organisation, resources, professional development, evaluation)

We will endeavour to respond to your enquiry within two weeks. 

Please review the following criteria before applying:

  • Charities with DGR 1 status operating in Australia
  • Aboriginal initiated and led organisations preferred (majority Aboriginal inspired organisations with >50% Aboriginal board and demonstrated high levels of Aboriginal employment, participation and leadership)
  • If you're organisation is not Aboriginal initiated and led you must be in partnership with an Aboriginal initiated and led organisation
  • The ultimate outcomes of the funded activities will benefit children and their families in an early childhood setting
  • Primary funding stream focusses on NSW or east coast activities with national impact
  • Community grants are national

If you would like to discuss further please do not hesitate to contact us at or call (02) 9051 2411.
