Online enquiry

The Borrin Foundation is a very lean organisation. Due to our limited personnel, we do not generally accept unsolicited requests to meet or for you to pitch your idea to us in person. However, we are happy to have a brief telephone conversation.

If you have questions about your EOI initiative and its suitability for Borrin funding, or you want to test out your EOI idea, please use this contact form. The Philanthropic Advisor is happy to discuss things through a brief 10-15 minute phone call with you. Please provide your phone number in the contact form.

If your enquiry is about the 2018 EOI Round, please note 10 April is the deadline for any questions about the EOI process.

Please also note that our capacity to respond to requests to discuss EOI ideas will be limited. To avoid disappointment, make sure you submit any requests to discuss ideas early.

You can also use this form to provide feedback on how we can improve our website, or provide feedback more generally.

We also like to help potential grantees connect with each other. If you have a good idea (for example, you are an NGO with a research idea and want to partner with a researcher but don’t know who) we can help with this sort of enquiry. We are keen to encourage cross-sector collaboration.

Thank you for your interest.
