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 July.
