Ian Potter Foundation: Arts | Health & Disability – Expressions of Interest (Round 1, 2019)

The Ian Potter Foundation makes project and travel-grants across a broad range of sectors and endeavours.

The following program areas are open for applications in Round 1, 2019.


The objective of this program is to support first-rate artistic institutions and organisations in metropolitan and regional Australia, which are distinctive in artistic achievement, imagination and innovation in fostering development across a sector or art form; and to support such institutions to host artists in high-calibre professional development and/or leadership opportunities of at least 12 months (e.g. fellowships, apprenticeships, mentorships, internships).


In general, the recommended minimum grant amount for institutions and organisations is $100,000 and these are usually considered as multi-year grants; although in the case of smaller organisations, the award can be for small amounts over multiple years. The Ian Potter Foundation rarely awards the full amount of any project.

Health & Disability

These grants target programs that help improve quality of life for those in our community living with disability or illness and support programs that focus on the prevention of diseases. The main priorities of the program are to promote good health for all Australians and improve outcomes for people living with disability. Research and development in public health and preventative medicine initiatives are an important part of this program.


The Foundation only considers grant applications in excess of $100,000 in this program area. The Foundation is unlikely to fund 100% of a project cost.


The Ian Potter Foundation can only make grants to organisations with both Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Item 1 and Tax Concession Charity (TCC) status. The Ian Potter Foundation is a public ancillary fund and cannot make grants to other public ancillary funds (PuAFs) or to private ancillary funds (PAFs).
