Women Moving Millions
8 December 2009 at 11:33 am

 Women Moving Millions is a global philanthropy campaign to elevate women and girls to the top of the philanthropic list and to encourage investment in them with even greater commitment by women and men. The campaign is based on the theory that when women prosper, communities thrive; and when communities thrive, the world becomes a better place for everyone.

The campaign will be unveiled at a series of lunches in Melbourne and Sydney

· Tuesday 16th February in Melbourne
· Thursday 18th February in Sydney

The Australian Women Donors Network, Chaired by Eve Mahlab AO and Deputy-Chaired by Carol Schwartz AM, invite you to reserve your table for this historic lunch in February and to join the Women Donors network.

Helen LaKelly Hunt is the Founder of The Sister Fund, and has been active in the women’s funding movement since its inception and has helped to found and fund more than 25 women’s funding institutions. With her sister, Swanee, Helen is a founding lead donor to Women Moving Millions and has invested US$10million personally to this campaign.

Christine Grumm has been President and CEO of the Women’s Funding Network since 2000 and has spent more than three decades in effecting social change especially through women’s philanthropy. She is the driving force behind the women’s funding movement.

The Women Mobilising Millions initiative is supported by: Australian Women Donors Network, Greenstone Group, International Women’s Development Agency, Victorian Women’s Trust, Reichstein Foundation, Sydney Women’s Fund and Philanthropy Australia.

To register your interest in the lunches or for more information, please contact Louisa Ellum at Greenstone Group at
