ANZAC Day Proceeds Fund

The ANZAC Day Proceeds Fund provides practical support to the veteran community through the provision of funding for a range of welfare related activities. Funding is provided to assist organisations whose principal objective is to provide welfare to the ex-service community.

The Victorian Veterans Council is responsible for distributing funds for this grant program and the Department of Premier and Cabinet manages the administration of the grants.



The funding for the ANZAC Day Proceeds Fund is derived from the proceeds of sporting events held in Victoria on ANZAC Day. Grants will be provided in accordance with the funds available.

There is one funding round per year.

Grants from this program can be used for:

  • direct welfare services, programs or assistance that is targeted to the ex-service community, for example, assistance with the payment of living expenses
  • welfare for those in the ex-service community who are socially or geographically isolated, for example, the cost of providing access to activities
  • health and wellbeing programs and activities for veterans and/or their families
  • operating costs for the provision of welfare, for example, the costs of providing transport for shopping, social activities and welfare needs.
