VFFF 50th Anniversary

Screen-Shot-50th-Anniversary-publication

Through The Lens

To celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2012, VFFF awarded $50,000 grants to 20 of the outstanding organisations it has worked with over the last 50 years.

The grants were dedicated to strengthening these organisations, as a way of expressing our gratitude for their contributions to the community, our belief in their work and our wishes for their ongoing success. Invitations were made to organisations of a certain size so that a distribution of $50,000 could make a valuable contribution to their capacity and each determined how they would use these funds to strengthen their organisation.
