YWCA Canberra Great Ydeas Grants

Each year, YWCA Canberra provides small grants of up to $2,000 to women, including female identifying and non-binary people across Canberra through our Great Ydeas Small Grants program. Funding can be used to launch a new idea or project, undertake education or training opportunities, or provide seed funding for a small business, for example.


This year, the YWCA has a total of $14,000 in both general and specialised grants.

These include:

  • YWCA Canberra’s Great Ydeas Grants ($8,000 available for grants of up to $2,000 each)
  • Microsoft Great Ydeas STEAM Grant ($2,000)
  • CBRIN Great Ydeas Innovate Grant ($2,000)
  • EY Great Ydeas Creativity Grant ($2,000)

More information on each of the grants is available on the YWCA website, including eligibility criteria and how to apply. Applications close Friday 6 April.
