Melbourne Women's Fund

Melbourne Women’s Fund has a simple aim: to engage Melbourne women in philanthropy which benefits our community.

This is done by women coming together in a Giving Circle, to pool their financial, intellectual, professional and personal resources to benefit groups and organisations in Melbourne that are bravely dealing with issues that undermine the quality of life and futures of women and their families.
