Terms and Conditions

Our full terms and conditions are provided below the shaded box, but if you’re short on time, here’s a summary:

  • Availability: We do our very best to ensure that the Funding Centre website and related services are available whenever you need them but please understand that sometimes, unavoidably, as with all services available via the internet, you may lose access for a while.
  • Data accuracy: We take pride in ensuring our data is up to date and accurate, but you should not rely on our data alone. Please double-check everything but particularly crucial information such as closing dates. If you do spot a mistake, please let us know so we can correct it as quickly as we can.
  • Data use: We aim to reach as many grantseekers as possible so we can make our products as cheap as possible. As such, we will rigorously enforce all our intellectual property rights:
    • Only paid-up subscribers are permitted to access the restricted areas of the website – you are allocated one password per user (up to 10 users per subscription for multi-user subscribers). You are not allowed to share your password around, not even within your own organisation.
    • Only paid-up subscribers are authorised to receive the EasyGrants newsletter (one user for single-user subscriptions, no more than 10 for multi-user subscriptions). Again, you are not allowed to forward on the newsletter.
    • We won’t tolerate anyone scraping or sharing our data to use for any purpose other than their own grantseeking.

Thank you for visiting the Funding Centre website (Website), owned and operated by Our Community Pty Ltd (ACN 094 608 705) (we, our, us).
