100 Women Grants 2017 (Up to $30,000 available)

100 Women Grants 2017 (Up to $30,000 available)

Deadline: June 30, 2017

Are you connected with a charity that is up to great things for women and girls? Expressions of interest (EOIs) are now open for the 100 Women 2017 grant round. 100 Women awards grants to organisations that advance the safety, health, education and economic freedom of women and girls. 100 Women enables everyday people to be involved in creating a world where all women and girls can live safely with access to health, education and economic freedom. They do this by combining donations and knowledge to provide impactful grants.

100 Women is a giving circle, a unique collaborative process that enables everyday people to be involved and engaged in philanthropy. Members of their giving circle pool their financial, intellectual, professional and personal resources to ignite women’s philanthropy through the power of collective giving to advance the empowerment of all women.


  • 100 Women plans to support three grants of up to $30,000 to successful organisations. The level of grant support will ultimately be determined by how many members join the giving circle and the funds in the grant pool.


  • Organisations must be a fund, authority or institution:
    • which is Charitable (or would be a charity within the meaning of the Charities Act 2013 (Cth) if it were not a ‘government entity’, as defined in the Act); and
    • that has Item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient Status (DGR)
  • 100 Women will consider applications up to a maximum amount of $30,000 that:
    • Improve the economic empowerment of women from disadvantaged backgrounds; or
    • Improve the health outcomes of women and girls; or
    • Improve educational outcomes for girls and women; or
    • Provide safety to women and girls at risk from rape, forced prostitution, sex trafficking or family violence.
  • Further, expressions of interest are strongly encouraged that:
    • Target an identifiable population for a specific duration
    • Have considered the sustainability of the activity both in terms of funding and learning outcomes
    • Have measures of change and assessment of outcomes built into the program logic
    • Provide evidence of the need or problem being addressed
    • Have community commitment by demonstrating other funding contributions. In kind contributions are evidence of this
    • Demonstrate a wide base of community support and where necessary that stakeholder consultation has been undertaken.


  • Read the 2017 Grant Guidelines carefully before submitting an expression of interest via the Expression of Interest Form.
