How it works

Telstra Kids funds grassroots projects, delivered by local non-profit groups, for local kids, across metropolitan and regional Australia. Projects that are successful will receive a grant of $1,200 to help kids connect to their local community. Please note, Telstra Kids applications are a two part process. Eligible employees can register their interest for a TKF grant via the Register Now button below. When the registration period closes, a lottery will select 415 employees who can then complete the grants process. Employees who are not selected will also receive an email advising them their application missed out this round.

Your Great Idea

We love and encourage applications that help kids thrive in a connected world — for example, projects about learning with technology, caring for the environment, or getting creative with arts and craft are awesome. However, if you have another idea in mind, that's OK — we fund all types of projects.

Telstra Kids loves to connect kids to local activities supporting digital making and citizenship, the arts and culture, education, the environment, or sport and recreation.
