About Dreams for a Better World

Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World program is all about partnering with those who dream big and do good to improve the lives of other Australians and their community, and we have $150,000 in grants to help make it happen.

Since 2011, Sunsuper's Dreams for a Better World program has been supporting community development programs and partnering with not-for-profit organisations that help bring lasting and positive change to the lives of many Australians. We've expanded the program so that community-minded small businesses can also apply for a grant, and help tackle a local or social issue in their community.
