Apply for a grant

The Ross Trusts exists to create positive social and environmental change so Victorians can thrive.

In line with our Vision, we are progressing well with supporting important projects that align with our current funding priorities of educational equity and biodiversity conservation.

To help organisations achieve the desired outcomes, we grant in three different ways:

  • Smart Grants: up to $40,000 per year for up to three years
  • Advocacy Grants: up to $50,000 per year for up to three years
  • Challenge and Change Grants: $40,000 to $100,000 per year for up to three years.

With demand for these much-needed grants continuing to increase, we’ve decided to put applications via our website for Smart Grants for Educational Equity and Biodiversity Conservation on hold until 1 July 2022.

Take advantage of the hints and tips and other material to ensure you have everything you need before starting the application process.

It may be several months before you find out if your grant application was successful. If you need more information about the process, first have a read of the FAQs.

All facets of the Trust's work, including our grant making, are guided by the principles of our Ethics Charter, which ensures we act responsibly, appropriately, and ethically.
