Apply for a Grant


The Jack Brockhoff Foundation is upgrading its grants processes.  Those intending to apply for a Children and Youth grant must call the Executive Officer to discuss their request before preparing their formal application. Applications will now be completed online in a new format. Please see the relevant funding area on this site to access the on-line application forms.


Every year, the Jack Brockhoff Foundation supports many charitable organisations across Victoria.  The Foundation makes annual grants in three priority funding areas:

Priority Funding Areas

Applications are invited from eligible organisations which meet the following criteria:

  • Have a broad community reach and profile
  • Demonstrate sound management and service excellence in meeting clients’ needs
  • Have a high degree of community and/or volunteer involvement
  • Connect their operations with the community they seek to assist
  • Benefit people residing in Victoria

The Foundation is particularly interested in providing seed funding for new projects. This is especially the case where the project’s objectives will potentially deliver sustainable, medium to long-term benefits for the broader community.  Applications for projects which involve partnerships with other non-for-profit organisations working collaboratively to address a community need are encouraged.

The Foundation requires all applicants to contact the Foundation’s staff to discuss their project or program before submitting their application.

You may email the Foundation at with a brief outline of your project and budget estimations or call us on (03) 9006-1765.

Applicants should be aware that the Foundation may seek independent expert guidance on appraising applications.

The Foundation expects applicants to articulate their long term goals and to demonstrate a strategic plan and operational objectives to best address their clients’ needs.  Well managed and efficient operations are highly regarded.


Applications must be made on the relevant online Grant Application form.

The process for submitting an application has changed as of February 2016. Please see the relevant funding area on this site to access the on-line application forms.

The Foundation will acknowledge all applications via email to the contact person as nominated on the Grant Application Form.
