How long will it take till I hear about my application?

If my application is successful, how will I receive my grant money?

There are two ways you can receive your grant money:

a) WPI will reimburse you for the purchase of the item your grant has been approved for. You will need to keep your receipt as WPI will only reimburse with the original receipt. Once you submit the original receipt, WPI will reimburse you direct to your bank account.

b) You can provide an invoice for things like extra-curricular activities, school camp, etc. for WPI to pay this directly for you.

Help us promote the program

Should your grant application be successful, we would love for you to send us a photo (please ensure your child’s face is not captured for safeguarding purposes)! We will use success photos to promote our new Brighter Futures Small Grant Program to help WPI secure more funding to keep the program running.
