Reading the information about our process will also give you some hints as to what you will need to do both before and after your application. If you would like to know how the Ross Trust generates its income for distribution as charitable grants, please read our fact sheet and governance information.
While the eligibility requirements are similar for all our grants, you can only apply online for the Smart Grants.
