Investing in charities that empower women and girls

100 Women is a collaborative giving circle that amplifies the giving power of everyday people to create significant change for women and girls. Our ever-growing giving circle gathers people from all walks of life to contribute and celebrate the life-changing impact that we together can have on women and girls – locally, nationally and globally.

We support the United Nations Sustainability Goal No. 5:
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. 

For more information on this goal, see a UN fact sheet here and why gender equality matters here.

By giving members the opportunity to vote for projects and see the impact of grants first-hand, 100 Women creates a meaningful giving experience.

The 100 Women grant round typically runs from March – October annually. Information on the upcoming grant round is listed prior to the round opening.

Please take care to check that your organisation is eligible to apply and that your project meets our guidelines.

Eligible Organisations

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

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).
  • Organisations must have been in operation for at least 36 months.

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

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. We also do not support organisations through auspicing arrangements.

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. Note overseas registered charities do not meet this requirement.
