Nous supports not-for-profit and community organisations through our Community Partnership Scheme (CPS), which delivers discounted consulting services to organisations that otherwise may not have access.
Over the years Nous has partnered with more than 100 organisations through our CPS, providing more than $5 million in consulting services and advice on more than 110 projects that deliver lasting positive change.
Applications are now open for the Spring 2021 Round of the CPS.
The CPS uses a partnership approach. Nous will contribute up to $60,000 worth of services to an organisation for a consulting project. Successful applicants must co-contribute the greater amount of $10,000 or 25% of project value. There is no upper limit to the size of the organisation’s co-contribution, so for example, an $90,000 project could involve $60,000 in services from Nous and $30,000 from the recipient organisation. This approach establishes a long-term commitment to the project and ensures outcomes are sustained.
Nous has prepared some examples of projects funded through the CPS including their price (value) to help you estimate the approximate value of your proposed work.
In past rounds, we have encouraged applications from specific themes. This round we do not have a theme and welcome all applications that match the eligibility criteria.
The eligibility criteria for the Spring 2021 Round:
The Nous Community Partnership Scheme is competitive. Nous encourages applicants to think deeply about how we can best assist the applying organisation.
