Aims of ACT of Women Giving
ACT of Women Giving has been established to fund projects that advance opportunities for women and girls in the ACT and surrounding regional areas. Our preference to support projects of this nature is due to evidence that investing in women and girls has a flow on effect to families, communities and the environment – therefore, we’re actually supporting men and boys, just not as directly.
We also aim to bring value to the community in the form of increased community connection, philanthropic investment and well-informed, engaged social investors and volunteers.
The following guidelines have been established to guide our giving. It should be noted that as ACT of Women is in its infancy we would like to keep a degree of flexibility so as to not discount other types of excellent projects that align with our aims. All applications should
include a budget, timeline and brief project plan.
Obligations of Grant Recipients
Successful grant recipients are required to spend funds within 12 months of receipt. The application is to include a budget and timeline. A short progress report is required at 6 months from commencement of the grant and a final report at 12 months. This information is also sent to the National Foundation for Australian Women where our preferred donor fund is held.
