Guiding Principles

The Courier-Mail Children’s Fund exists to change the lives of Queensland children in need.

Our application process is designed to ensure the way in which we choose charities to receive funds. We want to ensure the selection process for awarding of fund monies is above reproach.

The application process centres on the completion of an online form.

Your answers to the questions will help The Courier-Mail Children’s Fund decide whether your charity and our Fund will make a good combination, as we work to help as many Queensland children in need as possible.

We are mindful of the time it takes to compile information and apply for grants, and that this draws upon valuable human resources. Please know we have limited the number of questions to those we regard as essential to make an informed assessment of your application.
