Grant Programs

We distribute more than $4.5 million in philanthropic grants every financial year thanks to the support of people who include charitable giving in their wills.


Focusing on the principles of fairness, inclusion, collaboration, integrity and impact, our grants support organisations working innovatively to address systemic challenges that limit the quality of life for Victorians.

There are varying grant rounds within each program, with granting allocations and guidelines specified within the focus areas.
