Grants to Community Organisations
The Invergowrie Foundation makes grants to enable organisations to fund educational opportunities for girls and women in the State of Victoria. Funds may be applied to the development and/ or operational costs directly related to the provision of these educational opportunities.
The purpose of the Foundation’s grants to community organisations is to advance the education of girls and women in Victoria with the vision of these grants making a significant impact on their education, enabling access, promoting excellence, advancing leadership and supporting research.
An application process applies to these grants as outlined here.
On completion of the project which must be deemed to benefit the community, organisations must submit a report including a statement of expenditure. Recipients of grants are required to acknowledge and promote The Invergowrie Foundation.
Examples of previous community organisation grants can be found in the Chairman’s report.
