auDA Staff currently process grant applications and the Foundation typically offers grants
in the rang of $5,000 to $20,000 to not-for-profit organisations, students and research institutions.
There have been five grant rounds since 2006, totalling $1,286,338 in funding to 72 projects.
The auDA Board is conducting a review of the Foundation. The purpose of
the review is to:
- evaluate the effectiveness and reach of the auDA Foundation grants,
- evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the auDA Foundation
- provide recommendations to the auDA board about what changes (if any)
should be made to the auDA Foundation charter and the operations.
auDA have drafted a Discussion Paper to set out the current situation and invite
comments and suggestions for change.
The closing date for submissions is Monday 16 January 2012.
