Collaborative Community Projects

Carinity’s 2021 Collaborative Community Projects funding program is open to all Baptist churches in Queensland. For the next three years, a total of up to $500,000 per year will be available to implement community-engaged projects which:

  • Relieve and mitigate disadvantage;
  • Promote connectivity for vulnerable people; and
  • Increase the strength of local neighbourhoods against disadvantage.

With individual grants of between $5,000 and $50,000 per year available, and most grants anticipated to be in the range of $10,000 to $20,000, there’s plenty of scope to make your dream community engagement program come to life. 

The Collaborative Community Projects Guidelines can be downloaded here. You can also view a recording of the presentation used to launch the program by clicking here

Once you have familiarised yourself with the guidelines and the presentation, you can register as a user in our online application. Our system allows you to complete your application at a time that suits you, including the ability to save the application and resume it at a later stage. You can even register multiple users for your Church’s account if there are a number of you that need to work on the application.

Should you require any further assistance with the online application, or any other aspect of the program, please feel free to contact Carinity’s Church and Community Outreach Officer, Sarah Watterson, at
