Am I ready to be a philanthropist?

  • Is your philanthropic legacy and leadership important to you?
  • Would you like to discuss this with other like-minded women?
  • Want your donations to be more thoughtful, strategic or impactful?
  • Keen to know what’s involved in setting up your own fund?
  • Want to hear about the ‘journey of philanthropy’ from a philanthropy expert ?


Women are setting up their own charitable funds, for or with their families, at a pace never seen before. But many women are often still left wondering how to get started, what other women are experiencing, and finding a safe space, and the right expert to talk things through.

Would you would like to discuss how you can be involved with Founding Women? click here to express your interest or  please call us on 5331 5555

Friday saw Ballarat's Founding Women addressed by two inspiring speakers. Eve Mahlab AO is Founder and Chair of the Australian Women Donors Network and Julie Reilly is CEO of the Network. Both women are passionate about making a difference in the lives of women and girls through educating and advocating for mindful philanthropy to projects and organisations with a view to whether the unique needs of women and girls are being considered.
