2024 grant applications are now open.
The QCF regional grants program aims to support eligible charitable organisations providing services in the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Darling Downs region and Northern Queensland. Charities and causes supported may fit within, but are not limited to community wellbeing, health, arts and culture, animal welfare, children and youth, education, environment, medical research, indigenous and religion. Please check individual regional grant guidelines for grant criteria.
Applications for grants in one of QCF’s four regional areas will close 15 December 2023. Organisations are invited to check their eligibility and apply for organisational capacity through the General Fund Grants. The criteria for each region can be found here.

Organisations must be Queensland based, with all grant funds going to help Queenslanders in the region of application in need of general welfare support.
QCF has an annual regional grant making program which currently takes in the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and North Queensland regions.
Funding for this program is made available from the relevant regional sub-funds and QCF’s General Fund.
Applications from charitable organisations providing local service delivery in areas such as aged care, family support, children, health and welfare, youth and arts and which have the following characteristics are favoured:
- One-off projects for a specific purpose
- Demonstrate sustainability beyond the funding period
- Strengthen the community
- Reduce social disadvantage
- Help find solutions to community problems
- Benefit as many people as possible
QCF prefers to fund whole projects rather than making a small contribution to a large project. Part funding will be considered where applicants can demonstrate access to co-funding.
