Melbourne Women’s Foundation a giving circle dedicated to improving the quality of life for Melbourne women and families in need.

Established by Gillian Hund OAM and Patricia Burke OAM in 2014 and incubated by Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, it has granted over $980,000 to 43 organisations and its membership base continues to grow each year.

In 2023, the giving circle received independent charitable status from the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) and became known as Melbourne Women’s Foundation.

Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation continues to manage Melbourne Women’s Foundation Endowment Fund, which is a perpetual Charitable Fund Account.

By making donations to the endowment fund, donors contribute to building a corpus that will support the vision of Melbourne Women’s Foundation in perpetuity.
