We support advocacy work of civil society organisations, coalitions, campaigns and initiatives across four key focus areas


Mannifera funding can support core operations or be project-specific. We award three types of grants: Signature, Rapid Response, and Capacity Building.

Mannifera is currently open to expressions of interest for our 2023 Signature Grants. Submit an expression of interest before 5pm AEDT 10 February 2023.

Please note: To access the submission form, you will need to register to the Australian Communities Foundation Grants Portal.
