Jubilee 150 Trust grants

Grants for Disadvantaged Women

The Jubilee 150 Trust was set up in 1986 by the South Australian Unit of Australian Church Women (ACW).

The Trust, administered by Trustees, provides funds (from the interest earned on investments) for Grants for disadvantage women to enable them to achieve their goals, improve their personal skills and self-development through the provision of courses, resources or equipment.

Applicants must be sponsored by a Christian organisation or individual office bearer of a Christian group, who is required to provide on-going upport for the women receiving the Grant. The sponsoring body is accountable for the use of the Grant and is requested to provide a report to the Trust in the following year.

Note: The sponsoring body, as a Christian Church or Communty, is to confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures and commit themselves to the glory of the One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
