At MediaCast, we deliver impactful campaigns all over the country. From raising funds to raising awareness, some of our best work lies within the not-for-profit and charity sector. However, we know that not all organisations can budget to support their cause with PR…

Introducing MediaCast’s ‘Pro Bono for Purpose’ grants – an exciting opportunity for NFPs and charities to harness the power of PR, start a movement and create real and lasting change. Our grant is designed to give organisations the opportunity to build momentum through media relations and amplify their message across radio, tv, print and digital outlets.

Our team are experts when it comes to storytelling and will work with you to develop a purpose-led campaign, utilising whatever assets you have available. Whether you are looking to support an upcoming appeal, highlight a social injustice or raise awareness on behalf of a vulnerable cohort, we want to help you use media for change.

The MediaCast ‘Pro Bono for Purpose’ grants will be awarded to the value of $5,000 and $10,000 and can be used as the full value of a campaign or part value of a larger campaign. We will work with you on the best use of budget and to ensure your messaging reaches as many Australians as possible. So if you are a not-for-profit or charity with a mission to make a change, we encourage you to apply today.
