Impact Grant Winners Announced!

We're beyond delighted to announce the deserving winners of Dog and Bone's first round of Impact Grants for 2022.

In 2021, Dog and Bone launched a $120,000 annual in-kind grants program as part of our commitment to creating a better world through technology. Our goal is to amplify the impact of smaller not for profits (NFPs) working hard to make the world a better place. Dog and Bone’s Impact Grants give organisations access to technology projects ranging from help with their technology strategy, through to navigating the new hybrid workplace, to independent technology procurement. To date, we have awarded seven Impact Grants NFP’s to support them to achieve their missions through strategic technology projects.

Dog and Bone’s second round of Impact Grant’s for 2022 is now open for applications until 15 July 2022. If you’re an NFP, you could be eligible for our support with your next tech or telco project.

We are supporting St Kilda Mums with strategic IT guidance.
