Our funding

VANISH is a secular, independent, not-for-profit organisation. We receive the majority of our funding from the Victorian Government’s Department of Justice and Community Safety. We also receive financial support through agreements with partner organisations such as Open Place, as well as bequests, regular and one-off donations, and in-kind support from VANISH members and friends.  

We extend our sincere thanks to all our donors – so much of our work has been possible through your generosity and support. 

For further financial information, please refer to VANISH ‘s Annual Reports containing detailed financial reports.
