The Yoga For Good Foundation, a not for profit doing good in communities via yoga has awarded 27 grants in their latest round of funding. The Foundation have now awarded grants to a total of 38 organisations and yoga teachers carrying out projects that are doing good in their communities through yoga. Some of these projects have already started and others are planned for the coming months.
The Yoga For Good Foundation provides a platform for projects that benefit local communities through yoga principles, meditation and mindfulness. Coming into its third year, the Yoga For Good Foundation grant scheme has awarded a substantial amount to a range of initiatives across Australia. In this latest round, the reach of the program has doubled with yoga programs now being supported all over Australia.

There were so many worthy causes that the Foundation has awarded an additional 8 organisations grants for projects to be launched in the second half of this year. They will most likely request applications for Grants again in 2024.
