Australian Women’s Donor Network
Monday, 21st April 2008 at 4:04 pm

Australian women have been fairly conservative about their philanthropy in the past but that trend is changing according to a soon to be released PHD paper. Researcher, Barbara Lemon’s spoke about ‘Women Moving Millions’ as part of an Australian Women Donors Network event in Melbourne. The Network joined with Philanthropy Australia and ANZ Trustees to discuss issues of giving and women leaders in philanthropy. Organiser, Eve Mahlab AO says the Network is a ‘ginger’ group a catalyst for change but without a formal structure. Mahlab says the aim of the Network is to build better lives by channelling a greater proportion of philanthropic funds to or through women and girls. She says however the Network is not a fundraiser or grantmaking body but a forum to bring women philanthropists together to meet and collaborate both locally and globally. Anyone interested in joining the Network can contact their administrator Candice Ohanessian via email on caoha4@yahoo.com.au. (no request for funding please)
