What we fund

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation is particularly interested in funding programs that will have a positive impact on improving outcomes for children and young people, wherever they may live in Victoria, who are considered to be at risk or vulnerable.

Grants are made for no more than 12 months’ duration .

The Directors will give preference in their decision making to applications that focus on:

  • Prevention and early intervention
  • Support programs, activities and other opportunities that focus on improving outcomes for children and young people who are identified as being at risk
  • Programs or projects that have potential or capacity to carry on once the assistance of the Foundation has come to an end
  • Programs that can display support from the community and in particular that have an involvement of volunteers

Electronic payment of grants

The Jack Brockhoff Foundation delivers grants by direct electronic payment into a nominated account with a financial institution.  Successful applicants will be asked to provide banking and account details when they are advised of the success of their application.
