Dreams for a Better World

Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World program is all about doing something positive for the community. With a $150,000 annual grant pool Sunsuper offers a helping hand to Australian-based community groups and not-for-profit organisations to help make the world a better place.

How does it work?

Sunsuper’s Dreams for a Better World has four rounds each year, and each round has a different focus. You can enter any round at any time before the closing date, and we’ll let you know when your chosen round is up and running.
Tell us about your dream to help an Australian-based charity, community group or not-for-profit organisations make a real difference in the community. Use photos or shoot a video, and give your dream every chance of winning. Submit your dream

The public vote

Each round, six dreams will make the shortlist and the public vote for their favourite dream. The three dreams with the most valid votes are announced as the category finalists and each receive a $5,000 grant.

The judges choose

The judges decide which of the three finalists will be the round winner, to receive another $5,000 and progress to the grand final.

Grand final

Winners from each round attend the Grand Final Awards Night where the annual winner is announced. Each of the four grand finalists will receive an additional grant of up to $30,000. We’ll also announce the People’s Choice grant for $10,000.
