Country Grants


SA Quilters Country Grants - 2023

1. Grants of up to $500 are available to be awarded to country groups requiring financial assistance to further the art of quilting in their area or region.

2. Requests for grants should be for activities designed to help a whole group, or the community at large, e.g.:

  • the running of retreats, workshops, exhibitions etc.
  • charity group expenses
  • group activities such as community wall hangings, bus tours to other exhibitions etc.
  • group valuation of quilts

3. Requests for grants may be made prior to all arrangements being finalised on the proviso that, should the event not take place, any money advanced by SA Quilters will be returned to SA Quilters. Requests, however, have to show planning and intent, and those without substantive information will not be considered.

4. Requests for grants will only be received from groups which are financial members of SA Quilters, and have been for the immediate past three [3] years.

5. Groups may make requests for grants annually; however, depending on the number of applications received, they may be refused another grant for three years.

6. The grant recipients will be announced at the SA Quilters Annual General Meeting in May each year.

7. Requests for grants will be considered by the SA Quilters Leadership Team or their nominees, and their decision/s will be final.

8. If it is considered that no application of merit has been submitted, no grant will be awarded.

9. A written report should be submitted to SA Quilters Leadership Team, suitable for publication in I-Patch at the end of the project.
