ERFA is an international development organisation that focuses on sustainable and transformational education. ERFA partners with in-country organisations to deliver projects which require discrete, time-bound funding, capacity building and collaboration in project design, planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and ongoing learning.

The section below provides tools you will need to work with Edmund Rice Foundation (Australia).

Partnership and Funding

ERFA accepts partnership applications annually. All submissions are by invitation only.

For organisations that have not previously partnered with ERFA, an invitation may be extended to submit a “project concept note” via our online portal in April.

ERFA’s full partnership application period opens to invited organisations only in July each year for a period of six (6) weeks.

Please return to this page at that time or email ERFA ( for more information.

All partnership and funding applications must comply with ERFA’s Program Design, Funding and Management Policy.


Please refer to our Policies page on this website for program specific polices.
