What do we apply for?

VWT has fifteen Sub-Funds in total, each dedicated to alleviating specific social issues and helping women and girls to thrive. For example:

  • providing educational opportunities for women and girls
  • increasing the safety, security & dignity of older women
  • addressing educational, health and housing needs of Aboriginal women & girls
  • providing educational, employment and other economic opportunities for women from African communities

  • and much more!

If you have a grand idea for a project that may be ‘outside the box’, don’t hesitate to submit an application. VWT welcomes creative and innovative ideas!

Every Sub-Fund honours women in some way. Some are named after a woman or a couple, others are established in their memory, or have a giving focus that honours a woman’s life, passions and contributions. All of them invest in creating a better world for women and girls.
