The 2024 Women and Change grant of up to $50,000 will open for Expressions of Interest from July 1.

“Women and Change has reached two new milestones this year with record numbers of members and over $800,000 donated since 2014 in high impact grants.

By involving hundreds of women in impact giving, we are delivering change where it is most needed,” said Genevieve Fraser, Chair of Women and Change.

“Our members are always willing to invest in new solutions and we know this year there will be plenty of charities looking for funds to change lives for the better,” Genevieve said.

Women and Change is Queensland’s first giving circle, established in 2014, and each year members collectively donate over $50,000 to a project that helps Queenslanders in need. The members have given over $800,000 to charitable projects over that time.

All the information on this year’s grant is available on the Grants page with the first step being a short EOI for interested applicants.

“Our Grants team has a streamlined process starting with a short initial Expression of Interest,” Genevieve said.

“Members review the EOI’s and then shortlisted applicants are invited to submit a full application.”

“We meet again to review each Full application and three finalists are invited to present at our Voting Night in November.”

Genevieve said members develop a good sense of emerging and urgent needs.

“Fantastic way to create a more substantial impact with your personal philanthropic dollars. Also provides insight into the social challenges faced by women and children in Queensland in a more personal way and the types of charities/NFPs out there trying to improve their lives.”

“It’s been a hugely rich experience to support Qld charities and do this as a collective rather than individually.”

“Rewarding experience being exposed to the work small charities do and being able to impact them with directly with money in a very targeted way with good transparency.”
