Grant Guidelines

Applications from local organisations and groups must be for charitable projects that enable residents to help build a stronger, more resilient and prosperous Benalla and District community.

Our priority areas for funding are:

  • Families with young children
  • Youth development
  • Community connectedness
  • Addressing social disadvantage

Applications for grants up to $5,000 will be considered. Further details can be found in the Grant Guidelines form.

Applications & Acquittals

Grant applications are invited in February/March each year, with the outcome notified in May.

The Foundation will consider applications for Grants outside of this usual timeline, where there’s a special opportunity of real benefit to the community. Applicants in this situation must carefully read the Grant Guidelines before contacting the Executive Officer, Pat Claridge, to discuss their proposal.

A brief Grant Acquittal form must be completed by all successful applicants. This should be submitted within two months of completing the project.
