About

The world needs more dreamers. Those that see groups in their community who need a helping hand and dream of ways to make life better for them. Since 2011, Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World has awarded grants to 57 different community causes, in an effort to recognise the good they do to make the world a better place.

Four rounds per year. $150,000 in community funding

The Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World program offers a $150,000 annual grant pool. There are four rounds this year and grants are awarded to finalists and winners in each round. At the end of the year, the four round winners compete for the grand final grants totalling $70,000.

Each round has a different focus

Round 3 (Jan - Sep): Sport & community (Entries close 31 July 2015)
Round 4 (Jan - Dec): Environment & animals (Entries close 31 October 2015)
