Applying for a Grant

The John Villiers Trust accepts applications from eligible charities for projects taking place in Queensland which fit within one of our five program areas and three support sub-types. Before making an application, please check you are eligible.

When you prepare your application, you will be asked to select the program which best fits your project and the relevant support sub-type. You can apply in one program area only and in one support sub-type only. Your project should fit within at least one of the focus areas listed in your selected program.  Your project should also fit within at least one of the support sub-types under the relevant type of support.  More details and examples of how this works can be found in our JVT Funding Guidelines & Grant Conditions.

We are always happy to discuss your proposal with you, prior to submission but please don’t leave it until the last minute.
