Grants

There are several opportunities throughout the year to apply for grants or scholarships and we encourage you to check our website regularly or follow us on Facebook.

Supplementary Volunteer Grant Opportunities

The Australian Government provided Volunteering WA with funding to administer a Supplementary Grants program to volunteer involving organisations.

The purpose of the funding is to support the efforts of Western Australia’s volunteers as well as to encourage and increase participation in volunteering by on-funding grants to provide small amounts of money that organisations and community groups can use to help their volunteers.

For more information please visit our Supplementary Grants page.

National Volunteer Week

Supported by Lotterywest, each year during National Volunteer Week in May, Volunteering WA  offers grants of up to $1,000 to be used for organisations to celebrate their volunteers. See our National Volunteer Week page details of the grants and types of celebratory events supported.

Information on how to apply for a grant is available each year in early February. 

Scholarships

During the year, scholarships are made available for volunteer managers who are working or volunteering for an organisation that has a little or no training budget available. This scholarship allows a person to attend a series of Volunteering WA Endorsed workshops. For more information about our scholarship program please contact us.
