Mary MacKillop Today partners with organisations who support Australia’s most vulnerable and marginalised people improve their lives through education in all its forms. The Community Grants Program has invested grants in over 600 life-changing projects across the country since 1995.

Eligible organisations may apply for grants of up to $10,000 AUD to deliver small, life-changing projects that promote life-long learning for Australians affected by vulnerability.

By participating in these projects, individuals build skills and gain knowledge to improve their engagement with the community and take advantage of life opportunities. The Mary MacKillop Today Community Grants Program seeks to empower those in need to take control of their lives and to build a better future for themselves and their communities

The Program began as a response to on-the-ground work that the Sisters of St Joseph were doing with the vulnerable communities. In 2020, the Program awarded $150,000 in small grants to 15 recipients in urban, regional and remote communities.
