International Recoginition for Melbourne Women’s Foundation

Our giving circle is the proud recipient of the 2023 Philanos Spotlight Award! 
This award is a tribute to our partnership and impactful grant to Women and Mentoring (WAM). Our $60,000 grant in 2015 was a catalyst which allowed WAM to expand their vital mentorship program and secure additional government backing.

The Award was presented at the PowerUP! Baltimore 2023 Conference and accepted via video. It symbolizes the uplift that our giving circle members, collectively and individually, have enabled through steadfast support and commitment to meaningful change. Together, we’re a formidable powerhouse of transformation.

The success of WAM, with 80% of women not reoffending, inspires us to think of the crucial ripple effects of our grants in uplifting the lives women and families.
