THE HERO IMPACT GRANT

The world is a beautiful place overflowing with opportunities and experiences. However, sadly not everyone in this world is able to enjoy the same beauty that we may know.

At Hero, we feel extremely lucky and grateful for the opportunities that were given to us. As such, we hope to give back by creating opportunities for others which can then perpetuate into a contagious culture of giving. We believe that whilst donating money to a cause may provide temporary relief, it is the empowerment of people to make change that will ultimately solve our global social problems.

The Hero Impact Grant is a Hero Education philanthropic initiative that provides financial support to members of the public who wish to make a social impact. It is our way of teaching, encouraging and empowering others to care and make a positive impact towards greater social and environmental issues.

Recipients of the grant receive:

  • $AU500
  • On-going mentorship from our Founder Evan Wong
  • Access to relevant resources, expertise and networks
ELIGIBILITY
  • Applicants must be at least 16 years old.
  • The money provided must be used only in support or enablement of social or environmental change.  Such activities may include but are not restricted to personal initiatives, volunteering overseas or funding social projects.
