All our memberships are giftable, making them a wonderful way to share the spirit of philanthropy.


Our Members

Membership Essentials

Membership is by a tax-deductible donation each financial year (apart from a Life Membership).

Voting for Grant Recipients: To vote at our Annual Grant Awards Celebration, held each year in Oct/Nov, members must pay their membership fee by June 30. 
This allows members to have a say (vote) for how pooled funds are allocated each financial year.

Membership remains active until June 30 of the financial year of your last donation.
If you don’t renew by June 30 of the subsequent financial year, your membership will expire and you will be ineligible to vote for grant recipients the following Oct/Nov. 

Membership Renewal: We’ll send you a membership renewal reminder 12 months after your last donation. Your timely renewal ensures your continue participation in our impactful grant allocation process.

What our members say

I joined the Melbourne Women's Foundation to learn more about philanthropy and connect with a diverse network. It's rewarding to play a small role in building capacity for organisations that support women and families. Giving together to create significant impact is fun and so powerful.

I have always wanted to help people, which stems from volunteer work I’ve done at school and uni. At Melbourne Women's Foundation I can see how my membership donation contributes to making a bigger impact pooled with all members of the MWF Giving Circle.

For women who are thinking about joining, Melbourne Women’s Foundation creates a really great opportunity to get involved in making a difference, and it’s manageable when you’ve got a really busy life.
