How we grant

To maximise the benefit to applicants and streamline the application process, we engage closely with prospective grantees to ensure strong alignment with our funding priorities and strategic approach. This approach aims to increase the success and impact of each selected applicant. The Trust accepts applications by invitation only and does not receive unsolicited applications.

  1. If your organisation is seeking support and is a Victorian-based charity working in the areas identified as strategic priorities of the Trust, you are welcome to email us to provide brief information about your organisation and proposed project.

  2. Select organisations addressing the priority areas and aligned with the Trust’s approach will be asked to submit a brief expression of interest.

  3. Following the expression of interest, a small number of organisations will be asked to submit a full application.
