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 2017/18, our General Grants priority is projects that help Victorians understand the law. The foundation will consider legal projects including, research, service delivery, development of legal resources or community legal education. Community legal organisations may also include capacity-building activities to ensure projects have the greatest chance of success.

Our General Grants are for projects with budgets over $5000 (excl. GST) and with an increased budget we are looking to fund projects that will make a lasting impact and help more Victorians.

Small Grants are available if your project budget is less than $5000 (excl. GST). You can apply for a Small Grant at any time – there are no closing dates.
