"..... more moved by arguments than by empathy", Celso Vieira, in The Most Good You Can Do, Peter Singer, 2015, p. 35

This is a simple scheme for small (less than $3,000) grants for projects primarily executed in Tasmania, Australia. It's called "2A4" because it requires just one A4 sheet for the application and another for final reporting. The focus is on projects related to climate change, the environment and refugees - projects outside this scope are unlikely to be successful. Any applications which include a religious theme or a strong gender bias are also unlikely to be successful. Projects that only involve scientific research are ineligible (there are other sources for such funding). Please include your best itemized estimate of what you would spend. Requests for the maximum amount ($3,000) will be unsuccessful unless they are convincingly justified. If I'm excited by your proposal, I may fund it; if your proposal is for "busy work", then I probably won't. If I am attracted by your proposal, I may want to meet you once to discuss it - but I don't want to take up any more of your or my time than is absolutely necessary. So, if you want a small amount of money for something worthwhile and you don't want to spend the next week applying for it, give this a try!

If this doesn't seem to be for you, you could also try the Bellendena Grants Scheme or Thrive Women's Grants.

But first, you might want to see a summary table of grants offered so far, or to ask why is he doing this? - and you may also want to ask can I do it too? You may even be inspired to do something similar, to help build a community of philanthropic schemes in Tasmania - if so, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
