Dreams for a better world (2020)


Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World program is all about partnering with those who dream big and do good to improve the lives of other Australians and their community, and they have $150,000 in grants to help make it happen.

There are three seperate rounds;

  1. Better Living
    Dreams that improve the lives or living standards of other Australians
  2. Brighter Futures
    Dreams that empower others to learn and earn to have a brighter future
  3. Active Community
    Dreams that create active and healthy communities across Australia

There is $10,000 available for each of the category winners. The People’s Choice winner will receive $10,000 and the eight runner-ups from the People’s Choice will share in $20,000.

There is also a seperate round for community-minded small businesses so they can also help tackle a local or social issue in their community.

As always, we strongly recommend you look at the Past Recipients and finalists for inspiration for your own project ideas.


Before applying, download the questions. Gather your information and then the application should take about 15 minutes to complete.

It’s a very simple application, with the major questions that will require the “most” details are questions 5 thru 8. Question 5 (Summarise your dream) only requires 30 Words or less. Question 6 (Tell them about your dream) has a maximum of 500 words. Questions 7 and 8 don’t have word limits, but won’t take long to answer.

Applications for all three rounds close 5:00pm AEST, Friday, June 26, 2020.
