Community Grants & Donations

We’re passionate advocates and supporters of the Tasmanian community. That’s why we started our Dough for the People Community Grants.

Cripps receives hundreds of requests for donations and sponsorship every year, and while we’d love to support everyone that applies for our community grants, unfortunately this is not possible. Instead, requests are considered on a case by case basis. All requests are assessed on their individual merits and against other requests.

If you’d like to apply for a Grant or Donation of Cripps product, please read below before making an application.
