Applicants should understand the key dates and deadlines when submitting a grant application to ensure their portion of the process is completed in a timely manner.

The submission deadlines are in place to allow enough time to review your proposal. Leaving submissions until the last RCH deadline could result in delays, putting your application at risk of missing the RCH Foundation Grants Committee meeting. Applicants need to ensure their proposal for funding is submitted within sufficient time to be reviewed internally for approval by the RCH ahead of formal submission to the RCH Foundation.

Once submitted to the RCH Foundation – proposals up to and including $50,000 are considered by the RCH Foundation Chief Executive Officer on a monthly basis.

Proposals with a total value over $50,000 are considered by the RCH Foundation Grants Committee who meet quarterly as above.
