2016 Grants in Australia Survey launched

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.

Start the survey

This year's survey covers a range of grants-related topics, including questions aimed at gaining insights and opinions on:

  • The number and scale of grants applications submitted and grants received
  • Grants towards "indirect or core costs"
  • Multi-year grants
  • The quality and scope of contact with grantmakers, as well as their support
  • Grantmakers' communication, feedback and information provision
  • Acquittals and reporting
  • Data
  • Outcomes and outcome measurement

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.
