Duration: 16.34 minutes
Westpac Foundation’s Social Scale-up Grant is designed to help scale-up not-for-profit social enterprises that are creating jobs and employment pathways for individuals who often face significant barriers to entering the mainstream job market or are excluded from the workforce.
Successful recipients will receive $300,000 over three years, as well as valuable non-financial support such as business mentoring through our More than Money Program, to help scale-up their operations, grow their business and increase their social impact.
This recorded introductory briefing by Janie Lawton (Director, Portfolio Management, Finance, Technology) will provide an overview of how to present financials for the grant application. Janie will discuss how the Foundation’s team assess the financial health of its applicants, outline some common challenges and mistakes, and how to detail assumptions.
