LORD MAYOR'S CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation works to inspire philanthropy throughout the wider community and to support positive change on the big challenges facing Melbourne. We are known as the community foundation for Greater Melbourne.
As a leader in the philanthropic sector we encourage the exploration of new solutions to tough social and environmental problems. The Foundation has provided thought leadership on many of the issues facing the community. Our program areas include Homelessness & Affordable Housing, Education & Employment, Environment & Sustainability, and Healthy & Resilient Communities, and Inspiring Philanthropy.
We nurture and support community philanthropy to inspire community giving and grantmaking. We support the Melbourne Women’s Fund members through managing compliance of the Fund and sharing knowledge of philanthropy. We hold the Melbourne Women’s Fund as a collective giving circle (charitable fund account) within the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund.
As a subfund of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Melbourne Women’s Fund abides by the Foundation’s policies.
