~ Applications for the 2023/24 Empowering Women and Girls Grant are now closed. This grant will be awarded at our Pitch Night on September 14th, 2023. ~

NRCF is dedicated to improving the lives of those less fortunate in our community. We have developed a Women’s Giving Circle to bring together women from across the Northern Rivers. The Giving Circle works towards developing equality and human rights for women and girls through an annual grant program – ‘Empowering Women & Girls’.

In response to critical issues impacting the Northern Rivers community, the Women’s Circle Grants Program offers funding that focuses on the following areas:

  • Supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged women and girls in our community by addressing their social and economic wellbeing 
  • Empowering women and girls in our communities to play a bigger role, gain recognition and use their skills in their region
  • Supporting women’s financial stability by creating or promoting diverse and flexible job opportunities 
  • Offering diverse representation to women and girls, boosting confidence, and encouraging engagement (you can’t be what you can’t see!)

To explore what the Women's Giving Circle has achieved so far through the Empowering Women and Girls Grant, view our news articles here.
