Applying for a Grant

We conduct an Annual Grants program made up of two grant rounds:

  • General Grants
  • Sub-Fund Grants


In 2017,  the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust sought applications for projects benefiting women and girls, in particular to:

Promote social inclusion and community cohesion in regional Victoria addressing the needs of refugee and migrant families or women or girls who are experiencing socio-economic disadvantage, lack of educational or training opportunities, or who live with a disability or illness.

Applications for the 2017 General Grants closed on Friday 24th March 2017 and are currently being assessed.   Successful applicants will be notified in late July. 


The 2017 Sub-Fund Grants Program opened on Thursday 1st June and will close on Monday 31st July 2017.
