Are you a school in Victoria or Western Australia? Enter our Matched Funding Grant Program and win free play or fitness equipment!


Raising the funding required to build your school's dream play or fitness space can be tough. Sometimes you just need a little helping hand.

The 2019 KOMPAN Australia Matched Funding Grant Program is our opportunity to give back to Australian schools, starting with Victoria and Western Australia!

We're offering successful recipients from each state the following matched funding grants:

  • First prize - 50% matched funding
  • Second prize - 35% matched funding
  • Third prize - 25% matched funding

 This means if your application is awarded first prize, and the equipment you'd like to install is worth $50,000, we'll contribute an extra 50% of the equipment value in the proposed project, or $25,000 worth of free play or fitness equipment, meaning you end up with a supercharged $75,000 playground!

*Please note, the cost of surfacing, shade and installation is not included and will be costed in addition to equipment. Applicants will need to ensure they have adequate budget for these elements.

There will be two rounds of grants awarded for a maximum of twelve (12) grants across VIC and WA: a first round in April (maximum six grants awarded), and a second round in September (maximum six grants awarded). This is to cater for schools who will be in a position to enter their applications at different stages throughout the year.

Take a look at the entry requirements below, then review the terms and conditions to ensure that you're eligible. 

Each application will be assessed against a range of criteria including creativity, play value, inclusivity, environment, and benefits to the school community. Check the terms and conditions for more information on the grant criteria.
