Investing in charities that empower women and girls

An update on the 100 Women 2020 grant round

At 100 Women we are passionate about our mission to advance the safety, health, education and economic freedom of women and girls.

We believe that at this time of high need and global uncertainty, the mission of 100 Women is more important than ever. To ensure our resources are directed most effectively, our 2020 grant round has been closed and applications for this round will be accepted on an invitation-only basis. More information will be provided to our members as the grant round progresses.

We appreciate that this decision may be disappointing, however we envisage that this change will only be for our 2020 grant round and that we will be able to return to an open grant round in 2021.

Make sure to follow and like 100 Women on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for more information about our grant activities. If you have any questions about the changes to the 2020 grant round, please contact our team by email:

Eligible Organisations

100 Women awards grants to organisations that advance the safety, health, education and economic freedom of women and girls.

You must be an Australian registered charity with Item 1 Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. This is mandatory and overseas registered charities do not meet this requirement.

Check your Eligibility

Mandatory requirements govern which organisations can receive a grant from 100 Women. Grant applicants must be:

  • Charitable organisations within the meaning of the Charities Act 2013; and
  • Have Item 1 DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) status (in section 30-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997).

Grants may also be made to exempt organisations that would be charitable but for their connection with government and which are Item 1 DGRs.


Further, we require organisations to have been operating for at least 36 months.

You can check whether your organisation is a Deductible Gift Recipient (Item 1) and a Charity by looking it up on the Australian Business Register.

The timeframes for 2020 are currently being reviewed and will be updated shortly.
