With over 237 sub-funds, QCF provides more than 300 grants annually that broadly fall into the following categories: health and medical research, community, indigenous, children and youth, animal welfare, disability, environment, religion and arts and culture. QCF also supports a number of university scholarships.

Applications from charitable organisations can be made to one of three dedicated QCF grant programs.
