LEGACY WESTPAC EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT FUND (LWF)
Westpac Bank have made a generous donation to Legacy Australia Incorporated as part of the News Corp Anzac Coin campaign for education, training and development purposes for Legacy beneficiaries.
The LWF grants are limited to $15,000 per application per calendar year or to a maximum of $45,000 over three years. Grants are limited to $50,000 for Clubs in any given calendar year.
Clubs are to complete their own due diligence before submitting an application, namely a review of the beneficiaries’ financial position.
The Legacy Westpac Fund (LWF) may be used for:
a) Vocational training and development for all Legacy beneficiaries e.g. Certificate IV in Business Administration, exchange programs and computer skills courses for dependants with a disability.
b) Tertiary and vocational study assistance for Legacy beneficiaries e.g. tertiary qualifications in education, nursing or midwifery, various TAFE courses and assistance with course related expenses (excluding payment of HECS-HELP fees or debts).
c) Youth development activities/projects/programs organised by Legacy Australia e.g. Pozieres Study Tour and Operation Legacy Australia Kokoda Challenge.
d) School costs to support Junior Legatees where the Legacy Club has insufficient funds to provide a minimum level of support e.g. school fees, literacy, numeracy and music tuition.
