Grants are a great way to contribute to school and community fundraising. It’s important to know what to look for, where to look and be prepared!

Instead of trying to fit your project into a grants program, we want you to prepare your project for when the RIGHT grant comes up.

Greenline has put together resources for grant applications and will continue to add to these resources. As always we are more than happy to answer any questions and help you put together your project portfolio.

shade sails for victorian shade grant

VIC | VSBA School Shade Sails Fund

The VSBA School Shade Sails Fund is an initiative from the Victorian government as part of their three V’s for a safe return to school post Covid. The aim of the Fund is to help schools maximise the use of their outdoor learning areas and environments by creating safe and shaded outdoor learning spaces. Each school is eligible for a grant of up to $25,000 per campus to install new shade sail/s. As this is not a ‘grant’ it is non-competitive – this means all schools who are eligible to apply will receive the funding.

Schools: All Government schools are eligible, as well as low fee Catholic and Independent schools.
Projects: To be eligible your project must involve outdoor learning – the shade structure cannot be over a playground or play equipment.

Registrations Open: 23rd September 2021 

Registrations Close: 22nd October 2021 (quote not required to register)

I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures

I have great confidence in this team/company.

Wodonga Primary School - Damian Duncan - Principal

I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability. Our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.

From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.
