The success of grant programs depends on the impact and enduring benefit that comes from the investment that has been made
Our grants are given on an invitation-only basis. The Grants Committee works with the LMCF grants team to research projects of eligible charities and invite those that meet Melbourne Women’s Fund’s grant selection criteria to apply for funding. Members are also able to nominate grant seekers that fit our criteria for consideration.
Who is involved?
The Executive Committee, the Grants Committee and our members are involved in the grantmaking process. The trustees of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation advise and approve the Grant finalists to be voted on by Melbourne Women’s Fund members in attendance at the Decision Event.

Conflict of Interest Grants Committee
We are committed to acting with integrity in all of our relationships and in selecting grant recipients through an honest and fair process. In support of this commitment, our conflict of interest policy and conflict of interest register require disclosure of relationships between our grants committee members with any grant applicant or potential grant applicant. We also require grants committee members to excuse themselves from discussion and/or collective choosing on any topic where a conflict arises.
