Goulburn Valley - McEwen Foundation

In 2015 the program will deliver grants of up to $10,000 for projects and activities that offer a clear public benefit, are for charitable purposes, and address a need in the community.

In keeping with the wishes of the late Lady McEwen, and directions of the McEwen Foundation, priority will be given to projects that support:

  • Youth development and/or supporting vulnerable young children;
  • Children’s early learning and development services; and

Those LGA’s marked with a * on the map are eligible for FRRR & The McEwen Foundation Partnership Grants 2015 and are defined as the wider Goulburn Valley District, Victoria, for the purposes of this grant program.
