Remi has 2 charities that are vehicles to making a positive impact in others' lives
International Coaching Institute Foundation has donated more than $3,000,000AUD since it began, supporting causes close to her heart. Her contributions have saved many bears from bile farms throughout Asia, purchased a van for an orphanage in Nigeria, paid for educational materials for children in Africa, and provided much-needed equipment for the Sacred Heart Mission in St. Kilda, Australia.
The Live Your Dream charity, also financed by Remi, has monthly grants available for women 45+ years of age who have a passion they need help to bring to life. You may be an artist, a fashion designer, a writer, an aspiring businesswoman, or a woman who can see how you can make a positive impact in the lives of those around you through delivering food, blankets, or educational materials.
THE IMPORTANT THING IS YOUR PASSION, YOUR DETERMINATION, AND YOUR DESIRE TO BRING YOUR VISION TO LIFE, OR TO GET HELP WITH YOUR VISION BECAUSE IT HAD A SETBACK.
Live Your Dream donates up to $30,000 AUD each month to inspiring women who can make a positive impact in their community through their creative passion. The grant package includes up to $10,000AUD and mentoring support to successful applicants.
The grant amounts range from $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 AUD. We have an amazing panel of mentors who will guide and coach you. Our mentors are dedicated and very successful people and because they are so dedicated to serving fully Mentoring is subject to availability and is provided free of charge to successful applicants
Where possible, and subject to availability, coaching and mentoring support is provided at no charge to applicants who request it, or who are unsuccessful in their grant application but would benefit from coaching and mentoring support.
“I believe that to create a kinder world, we must nurture and encourage the best in each other. We cannot become happier tearing each other down, finding fault, or shaming others. We can only become our best selves through uplifting actions, thoughts and beliefs. To see the best in others is to help them see the best in themselves.”
THE PEOPLE WHO WE ENVISAGE APPLYING FOR THIS GRANT INCLUDE:
Artists, poets, writers, entrepreneurs, or anyone who seeks to be supported as they invest the needed time on their craft, be it at a retreat, or making time for their passion. The grant money can pay, or contribute to the living costs of working less to create more.
Remi particularly loves seeing women who are a little more mature having a go at something new. Perhaps you have started a new business, have a small business that is underway and needs a little boost, or you’ve been going for a while and you need help paying for some graphic design, an exhibit, some transport costs, or a new printer. Whilst there are things we won’t provide grant money for (wages, contractor fees, consultancy fees, PR fees, website design), there may be something you need support with that would give you the exact boost you need.
You may need help getting an art exhibit underway. Or help with getting the exhibition costs covered. Or you can’t afford the printer that would enable you to produce your own printouts. Or you have a speaking gig and need a bunch of printouts printed for the audience so they can take home a wonderful example of what you do. Or you may want to launch a new product and need help with the cost of promoting the event.
Perhaps you’re an artist, writer, or designer and there is a retreat you can go to so you can focus on your craft for two weeks, and there is a fee for this. Or you want a little buffer to live on whilst you pursue your creative passion.
Maybe you love making an impact in the community. You make a difference through a charitable activity, a one-off project, or some other way to contribute. The funds would enable you to deliver on your desire to make an impact or would fuel a current project. Please note the funds cannot be used to pay for wages, for contractors, or any form of people hiring.
Perhaps its mentoring and coaching rather than money that will make the biggest difference for you. There are many creative ways you can move you and your dream toward where you want it to be...
And Remi would love to hear from you to find out if she can play a small part in your journey...
