Other potential funding opportunities

Below are links to other funds to support members’ participation in activities, public events and workshops that anthroposophical wisdom for contemporary times and in local regions.


The Ileen Macpherson Trust

The purpose of this Trust is to promote the study and dissemination in Australia of Anthroposophy in accordance with the principles defined by Dr Rudolf Steiner.

The Ileen Macpherson Trust sees money to be a spiritual intention that allows new impulses and possibilities to enter the world.

The Trust supports such work, initiatives, projects and studies that will grow and deepen the work of Anthroposophy in Australia. It is a small trust and for the next couple of years our contribution will reflect the limited funding that is available. There are two funding rounds per year and they are advertised when open through ASinA branch newsletters and networks. These application dates do not have a specific date attached to them at present.

We welcome you to be in contact and share your ideas, hopes and your intentions to take up such work by contacting us on our website.
