Applications are now open for Sage Foundation’s Enterprise Fund. The Fund will support the creation of either new or piloted entrepreneurial programmes or initiatives that may go no further due to funding challenges. Sage Foundation is committed to helping the most enterprising solutions become a reality in our communities. That’s why their fund is only open to non-profits with an income of less than $2M.
