Granting Strategy

The R E Ross Trust’s priorities and impact areas are reviewed on an annual basis as part of its strategic planning process. The Trust’s strategic objectives, which inform the areas and purposes for which the Trust makes grants, take into account the wishes of the Trust’s benefactor, Mr Roy Everard Ross. They are influenced by the changing needs of the community and the Trust’s ability to have impact in these areas.

The Trustees and staff of the Ross Trust are in the process of developing a new granting strategy to be implemented in 2019.

For the current financial year, while there are granting funds available, the Trust is only accepting applications for one-year grants for a maximum of $40,000 until 14 February 2019, for the existing program areas.

All decisions on granting for this current financial year will be completed by April 2019.

Information on the new granting strategy and guidelines will be introduced before the start of the new financial year.
