At this event, MWF Grants Committee members will present information on each of our three Signature Grant Finalists and three Nurturing Grant finalists. You’ll hear about the organisations themselves and the programs they are proposing. Each program focuses on at least one of our 2020 grant areas—Homelessness, Family Violence and Older Women’s Issues—relating to vulnerable women and families in Melbourne. Additionally, our 2019 grant winners, Lighthouse Foundation and Scarf, will report on their progress to date.
For our $80,000 Signature Grant, the finalists are Margaret Tucker Hostel for Girls, Birth for Humankind and Domestic Violence Victoria.
For our $35,000 Nurturing Grant, the finalists are Family Access Network, Housing for the Aged Action Group and Self Help Addiction Resource Centre.
Reminder: only individuals who have joined and fully paid their annual membership by 30 June can vote for the organisations they feel should win these grants at our 16th July Awards Celebration. To join or renew, please click here.
