Youth employment and race equity grant round: FAQs

My organisation does not meet one or more of the eligibility criteria, can Impetus still consider us for this Open Grant Round?

Our eligibility criteria have been calibrated to ensure that our partner organisations are of a sufficient size to benefit from our focused and hands-on support package and are aligned with our funding objectives. As such, we are not able to make exceptions for organisations that do not meet all the eligibility criteria.

I have completed the application form and would like the opportunity to give further detail and context on some of our answers, can I book a call to discuss our application?

If you progress to the shortlist, we will arrange a phone call with your CEO and have a chance to learn about your work in more detail. Our process for reviewing applications has been designed to allow us to assess multiple organisations on a consistent basis. Unfortunately, we are not able to conduct informal conversations with applicants before the shortlisting stage of our investment process.

Do I need a Google account to complete the application form?

The application form allows anyone to apply, with or without a Google account.

I submitted an application and have not yet heard back, when will I know the outcome of my application?

We will try to respond to all applicants with an update on our decision as soon as possible after the open call closes. However, depending on the number of applications we receive, the process of assessing applications may take longer than we expect. We will communicate the outcome of your application as soon as possible.

I have a question regarding the eligibility or application form that is not covered by the above.
