Who is it for?
Support to pursue your passions and improve our community
YWCA Canberra’s Great Ydeas Small Grants Program provides grants up to $2500 to support women, girls and non-binary people in the ACT to pursue their passions and improve our community.
The program was launched in 2010 in celebration of our 80th anniversary. Since then, Great Ydeas grants have helped more than 90 local women and girls to progress projects, including establishing a podcast, launching a public awareness campaign, running empowering programs for girls, attending a conference and launching a social enterprise.
Priority is given to projects that empower women in our local community and that have the potential to grow beyond the initial funding provided.
