Prue Myer Sub-Fund

The Trustees of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust established the Prue Myer Sub-Fund in 2011.

It reflects the desire of her daughter Jo Baevski and other family members to honour Prudence Myer, a social justice stalwart of one of Australia’s leading philanthropic families.

Our Sub-Fund Grants Program is now open, from Monday 19 July until Monday 30 August 2021. In 2021 the Prue Myer Sub-Fund will take applications for grants of up to $10,000, with a total granting pool of $14,500.

The Prue Myer Sub-Fund supports projects for immigrants and refugees and other disadvantaged girls and young women that:

  • provide them with positive mentoring opportunities,
  • improve their academic and educational outcomes, or
  • encourage their engagement and participation in political life.
