Lotterywest grant conditions and agreements must be signed by the person legally able to enter into contracts on behalf of your organisation. We refer to this person as the legal signatory.

  • For incorporated organisations, the legal signatory is normally the Chairperson or President
  • For Local Government Authorities, the legal signatory is generally the Chief Executive Officer
  • For Aboriginal Corporations, the legal signatory is usually two Directors
  • For not-for-profit Companies and Trusts, the legal signatory is generally 2 Directors / or a Director and Secretary

Your organisation’s constitution or equivalent document usually sets out who the legal signatory is. Please check those documents if you are not sure.

If your organisation’s legal signatory chooses to give this responsibility to someone else within your organisation we refer to the person nominated for responsibility as the ‘Delegated Authority’. If this is the case for your organisation, you need to complete our Delegated Signing Authority Form.


Please note: you only need to complete this form once and it will remain on our records for future grant applications. You will only need to complete this form again if your ‘Delegated Authority’ changes.
