Our Structure

Melbourne Women’s Fund is a charitable fund account of Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.

We are supported by a wonderful group of women who volunteer their smarts, energy and time to help us achieve our vision. 

It is not just the names of those who appear here. Every one of our members contributes to the success of the fund in different ways. 

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have a wonderful community of like-minded people.
