The largest grants-focused survey of Australian community organisations is open, with the 2016 Grants in Australia Survey launched today (Wednesday).
The survey celebrates its tenth year in 2016, with the survey questionnaire now open to the public.
This year's survey covers a range of grants-related topics, including questions aimed at gaining insights and opinions on:
What grantmakers and AIGM members can do
We encourage grantmakers, funders and AIGM members to share the link to the Grants in Australia Survey questionnaire (www.surveymonkey.com/r/GIA16) with their grant applicants and grantees.
The 2015 Survey attracted around 1350 responses, and we hope this year's survey gathers insights from an even larger number of respondents.
Two respondents will win a 38mm Series 1 Apple Watch featuring a space grey aluminium case with black sport band.
To enter, respondents need to answer the second last question of the survey, and then provide their email address.
The survey closes at 4pm on Friday, February 3, 2017.
Grants in Australia Survey Report library now unlocked
To coincide with the launch of the 2016 Survey, the AIGM has unlocked our bank of past Grants in Australia Survey Reports, making them free to the general public.
Our library of past survey reports dates back to 2006, and provides an invaluable resource charting not only the changing attitudes of grantseekers, but sector reactions to the shifting trends and behaviours in grantmaking.
The reports can be accessed here: www.ourcommunity.com.au/aigm/grantsinaustralia.
The 2018 Grantmaking in Australia Conference will connect you with the people who have stared down the challenges and give you the confidence you need to take one small step for your organisation, towards one giant leap for humankind.

There are some big players in the world of social impact reporting, with think tanks and technology companies vying to solve one of the toughest problems we face: how can organisations measure their social worth?
This is a new data-driven era, and if you claim that your grants programs have had an impact, you have to back those claims with data. Anecdotes aren't good enough.
