Virtual Grants Award Ceremony

29 Jun 2021

The Foundation were proud to partner with Bank Vic to recently award more than $100,000 to Barwon Health Departments through the recent major grant round.

The grant round had a focus on enhancing patient comfort and care and attracted quality applications from right across the health service.

The grant rounds were established to ensure the Foundation were investing in the projects and items of greatest priority and need across the service and since their implementation in March 2020 have awarded over $450,000 to many different services and departments across the service.

Thank you to Bank Vic for supporting the recent grant round.
