Spirit of Service

Spirit of Service is the Queensland Anzac Centenary small grants program which provided Queensland communities with grants up to $20,000.

Projects funded through Spirit of Service

Spirit of Service grants have been awarded to Queensland organisations paying tribute to the state’s contributions during the First World War or another significant military milestone from the past 100 years. While varied in scope, many of these commemorative projects incorporated:

  • historical research and education—digital innovation
  • the acquisition and preservation of war memorabilia
  • the restoration or enhancement of existing memorials and honour boards
  • public commemorative events, arts and culture.

Acknowledging funding

Organisations and communities who benefit from the Queensland Anzac Centenary grants program need to comply with funding conditions as part of a funding agreement.

Acknowledging this support informs the community about how public funding is being spent.

Your funding agreement with the Queensland Government means you’re required to use the government Anzac Centenary locked logo along with a written acknowledgement on the materials you produce.

You're also required to provide an opportunity for a government representative to attend your event or project, by sending an invitation via email or by post to:

Anzac Centenary Coordination Unit
Department of the Premier and Cabinet
PO Box 15185
City East Queensland 4002

Caring for memorials and honour boards

Across the state, more than 1,300 war memorials commemorate Queensland’s involvement in conflicts dating from the Boer War to the present day. If you’re tasked to care for a memorial, or perhaps seeking funding to restore a memorial during the Anzac Centenary period, please take a moment to read through The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection’s guideline Caring for war memorials (PDF, 4.88MB).

Other grant funding is also available through various local, state and national grant programs.
