The 2022 Women and Change grant of up to $50,000 will open for Expressions of Interest from August 1.
“2021 saw our membership grow to record numbers and we received an unprecedented number of applications from charities,” 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 $400,000 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 and the feedback is that applicants benefit from the process of transparent communication about their projects.
