Get Online Week event grant

Apply for a $1,000 event grant to help you host an event  to help people in your community learn new digital skills.

Grant applications open 8 July to 9 August 2024.

Get Online Week event grants help community organisations host a digital skills event during Get Online Week, 14-20 October.

Get Online Week events give people the chance to find the local support they need to improve their digital skills and get motivated to learn more. The grants support community organisations to host these events by covering some of the costs involved.

About Get Online Week

Get Online Week is an annual digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Australia. Last year, over 1000 community events were hosted by organisations around Australia, helping people with limited digital skills learn something new online.

This year Get Online Week will be held 14 – 20 October 2024.

Get Online Week grants support community organisations to host fun digital skills events during the campaign, promote their digital inclusion program and reach new people. Grant funding can be spent on marketing, learning resources, catering, venue hire, staff and volunteer expenses and event costs.

Host a fun and engaging event

Get Online Week grants support community organisations to host creative, fun and engaging digital skills events in their local community.

Each event is different. During Get Online Week, people have learnt how to find YouTube tutorials about their favourite craft, gone on a QR code treasure hunt, and even holiday from their armchair!
