The R E Ross Trust Grants

logoThese grants work around four impact areas. For Landcare groups the most relevant area is impact area D; the protection and preservation of Australian Flora and Fauna.

Impact Area D: Protection and preservation of Australian flora and fauna

The Ross Trust prioritises applications that:

· Demonstrate conservation value

· Provide scientific (biological and/or botanical) evidence to support the request.

If the proposal is to purchase land; the proponent must demonstrate:

· High conservation values of the land

· How the land will be managed in the future to protect those values

· How the proposed action will contribute to a broader landscape scale approach.

Please note: It is unlikely that applications for environmental education will be successful.

Organisations must first submit an Expression of Interest for consideration by the Trustees. They may then by invited to submit a full application. Applications are considered all year round.


The Ross Trust can only consider requests from organisations that:

– Operate in Victoria, or who will use the grant for the benefit of Victorians

– Have an ABN (Australian Business Number)

– Are incorporated.

Applicants are NOT required to be a:

– Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR)

– Tax Concession Charity (TCC).
