What can we Support?

We provide grants for various types of events.  Some are small – lasting only one day and involving a local community.  Others run over a week and attract thousands of people.

We support the cost of publicity, advertising and the hire of venues or equipment.  We may also cover entertainment, administrative needs, salaries and consumables where the cost cannot be met through other sources.

For an event in a small country town or remote location, we can also help with the cost of travel and accommodation for entertainers.

Grants are limited to $20,000 per organisation, for each financial year.  An organisation holding a major event drawing high attendance that’s run in partnership with a local government, businesses or community organisation may apply for more.

Our grants are not made for competitions, exhibitions, fundraising activities or events of a commercial nature.

Most importantly, we want to understand what your needs and ideas are.  Please talk to us.

What we Look for:

  • Community support
  • Accessibility of the event
  • Potential to build a stronger community
  • Possibility to help more people join in community life
  • Suitable event facilities and resources
  • Free or affordable entry
  • Strong event planning, management and evaluation
  • Approved licences and permits

Lotterywest is committed to achieving successful reconciliation outcomes.  We encourage you to consider including an ‘Acknowledgement of Country’ and ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony at your event.

When to Apply

Applications can be made at any time.  Please note that applications need to be made at least four months before you require a decision from Lotterywest.  This will allow time for a result from us, and time for you to organise the event.  Please talk to us before applying if you need a grant sooner.

Who can apply?

These grants are available to not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities.
