Harnessing the Power of Collective Giving
We are a Giving Circle that brings together Northern Rivers women to achieve equality and human rights for women and girls, and to enable them to realise their full potential.
A $1,000 donation made by 100 wonderful women, pooled together to create $100,000 will result in a $50,000 grant into the community and a $50,000 investment in the Northern Rivers Women's Fund.
All donations to the Giving Circle and the Women’s Fund are tax deductible.

OUR COMMITMENT – OUR MANIFESTO
We are committed to taking concrete actions, in our region of the Northern Rivers, as appropriate in line with G7 Guiding Principles. We are determined to achieve gender equality and human rights for women and girls, and to enable women and girls to realise their full potential to (i) actively engage in society and to take control of their own destiny, (ii) contribute to and benefit from sustainable, inclusive and equitable economic growth and quality of life
at home, in the community, and in all spheres of society and (iii) fully and effectively participate in all phases of the peacebuilding continuum, from conflict prevention to resolution and ultimately reconciliation. We also remain committed to preventing and responding to all forms of gender-based violence and discrimination against women and girls as they are pervasive barriers in realizing their full potentials.
