ASVB Grants Available Now

Posted on the 25th May 2022

What is the ASVB Grant Program?

The ASVB offers a grant program for not-for-profits and certified social enterprises, with an annual revenue of less than $1.5M, to access the ASVB for free.

These grants are funded through the sale of large and very large ASVB subscriptions (based on our sliding fee scale).

Our grant program is our way of helping to make sure any organisation can demonstrate the social value created by their programs and is the foundation of our social enterprise model.

What’s included in the grant?

Successful grant applicants are awarded a fully supported 12 month subscription to the ASVB. This means the organisation can add unlimited users to the ASVB from across their organisation, they can run unlimited social value impact calculations and download an unlimited number of Social Impact Valuation Statements.

Grantees will receive free online training and support throughout their subscription period to ensure they are confident in applying the ASVB methodology correctly.

How can an ASVB Grant Help?

An ASVB Grant can help micro organisations in a number of ways:

  • Build the internal social impact measurement capacity of the organisation
  • Forecast the social value that could potentially be created by a program to secure funding prior to delivery
  • Report the social value delivered through past programs to add evidence to funding bids or show social return on investment to existing funders
  • Use social value calculations to inform internal budget allocation and program improvement
  • Include in Annual Reports to demonstrate progress against Mission

How to Apply for an ASVB Grant

1 – Are you an Australian business that is either a registered not-for-profit or a certified social enterprise? If you answered ‘Yes’ move on to step 2.

2 – Download our current ASVB Outcomes List and check that we have the main outcomes that your program delivers. (You will need to identify three from the list to include in your ASVB Grant Application)
