Explore an Idea
Spark Grants create space for innovation by providing funding and resources for the exploration and development of an idea or response to mental health and or wellbeing in your community or for the people you support. The FFF adopts a holistic approach to mental health that is strengths based, wellbeing focussed and cognisant of complex social determinants. We look for ideas that align with our values and share our commitment to partnering with community.
We award up to six grants of $40,000 each every two years and the program runs for a period of 9 months. In addition to seed funding, the Fay Fuller Foundation provides access to curated online resources, capability development, and the support and expertise of the Foundation team and broader network to assist in exploring and testing the readiness of the ideas. At the end of the Spark process, we hope that partners will have an informed foundation to build upon to take their idea to the next stage.
