Education and Sponsorship
As ministries of Mercy Partners, you are able to apply for sponsorship to support the formation of your staff with their education and development goals and responsibilities. Full details are available in the Mercy Partners Education and Sponsorship Protocol and Application Form, located below.
The Nudgee Trust was established on 8 October 1869 and provides grants to ministries sponsored by Mercy Partners. These grants enable ministries to extend the range or depth of mission as they provide critical support to those most vulnerable in our community.
In 2018, the Sisters of Mercy Brisbane Congregation successfully applied to the Courts to transfer the Trustee role to Mercy Partners. Since acquiring responsibility as trustee for the foundation on 1 January 2019, Mercy Partners has committed resources to support Indigenous family services, refugees, the vulnerable elderly and to boost crisis counselling in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The application process is detailed in the below flow chart. To apply, please download the Disbursement Policy and Procedure which includes the grant application form.
