Over the past 18 years working within the Not for Profit community we’ve come across many smaller NFPs that are doing awesome work in the community but can’t afford professional services that would help them have an even greater impact.


This is why we’re now making $120k worth of grants available, annually, to smaller NFPs (under 50 staff) that need support with their technology but can’t afford it.

"Our best contribution is through the technology support we provide to organisations improving the world. Our grants support small Not for Profits that are having a big impact on the community."





Who can apply for a grant?

We want to support the impact smaller NFPs can have on the community by providing them with the strategic and technical support they need to more efficiently and effectively serve their community. We’re making $120k worth of grants available yearly with $40k worth of grants being released each quarter. Grants will be awarded between $5k-$20k depending on your requirements and eligibility.

If you’re a Not for Profit with under 50 staff, working to create a better world, you could be eligible for one of our grants.


By applying for a grant you agree that if you’re selected as a recipient, you’ll be contacted by the Dog and Bone team to evaluate your requirements and ensure the project meets your needs.
