The Jack Brockhoff Foundation draws on income from a perpetual fund to resource projects, people and infrastructure in Victoria.
It grants funds in response to need and opportunity to build social capital, and to address ill-health, disadvantage, vulnerability and inequality to improve the overall wellbeing of community in Victoria.
It makes grants each year in three main granting areas.
Grants are almost always for a period of 12 months only.
There are specific criteria for judgements in the three main granting areas : Children & Youth; Medical; Community.
However, all applications will be assessed in respect of five common criteria:
- Impact of the work. Impact is assessed on the basis of the magnitude of the benefit to individuals and the number of individuals affected.
- Capabilities of the applicant to carry out the work proposed.
- Potential of the work to influence practice beyond the organization in which it is conducted. For instance, by being a visible exemplar in its sector and/or providing a proof of concept of relevance to public policy deliberations.
- Quality of responses to questions posed in the relevant Application Form.
- Evidence of a desire to demonstrate to The Jack Brockhoff Foundation the impact of the work.
Please consider how your application will meet these criteria as you prepare your application.
