General Grants

Our General Grants fund projects that have a significant impact on the lives of Victorians and the way they understand and use the law.

Many organisations share our commitment to meeting the legal needs of Victorians. Our General Grants program supports these organisations, giving them the funding and assistance they need to take on legal projects that will benefit their community.

In 2015/16 our priority will be on supporting projects for the delivery of Law Week events and legal information projects where there is a recognised need. In assessing applications for Law Week events priority will be given to new events or for the expansion or continuation of rural and regional events.

Our General Grants are for projects with budgets of more than $5000 (excl. GST). Small Grants are available if your project budget is less than $5000 (excl. GST).

Applications for the 2015/16 General Grants are now closed. You can apply for a Small Grant at any time – there are no closing dates.

Before you apply:

  • ensure your project relates to the delivery of a Law Week event or a legal information project where there is a recognised need
  • read our grants criteria – this will help you understand what kind of projects we want to fund
  • at least six weeks before the close of applications contact our Grants Manager – the earlier the better.
  • read about how the foundation can help you with your application

General Grants are typically awarded within two months of the closing date.

Call Melanie Rygl, Grants Manager on (03) 9604 8100 or email.
