Auspicing is a service provided to members of Ausdance NSW. It is the management of grant funds for individuals and organisations that are not incorporated associations or that have very limited infrastructure. Auspicing by Ausdance NSW means that your grant funds are managed on your behalf, and reported on to the funding body at the end of (and occasionally during) the funding period.

Auspice fees apply to cover administrative, bank, and audit costs. Ausdance NSW charges a fee of 10% of grant funds. The auspicing fee will be included in your grant application budget as an ‘on top’ percentage charge after your complete budget is set. If the amount available is fixed, the percentage must be included in the fixed amount.
