The Dame Roma Mitchell grants provide financial assistance for eligible young people who have been or are currently in care under the guardianship of the Minister (under the Children's Protection Act 1993, or previous equivalent in South Australia).
There are two funding rounds each year, in February and September.
The 2018 funding rounds are now closed. 2019 dates will be announced soon.
You can help to support the grants by:
- participating in a workplace giving program
- making a tax deductible donation.
Workplace giving lets you donate through automated payroll deductions.
All donations made through payroll deductions are pre-tax unless otherwise specified.
Setting up automated donations
To set up automated payroll donations:
- complete the donation form.
- give the form to your payroll provider.
You can change or cancel your donation at any time by resubmitting the form to your payroll provider.
You can donate via direct deposit, credit card, cash, or cheque at any time by completing the donation form.
All donations over $2 are tax-deductible. You will receive a tax receipt if you provide your address with your donation.
For enquiries or further information, you can contact the Dame Roma Mitchell Grants Executive Officer.
