Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has announced it has provided grants worth $10.4 million to charitable and not-for-profit organisations across greater Melbourne at its recent Inspiring Philanthropy Celebration.

Throughout the year we celebrated the important contribution and impact of community philanthropy, and the wonderful contribution Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has made to Melbourne for 95 years.

Each year since 2015 Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation has hosted The Swanson Society Dinner to honour and recognise our donors who have planned to leave a gift in their will to the Foundation. This year we welcomed 120 guests to a special 95th anniversary Swanson Society dinner at the Melbourne Town Hall.
