The Online Project Showcase aims to connect our growing community of philanthropic funders to the many wonderful organisations whose projects benefit women and girls.
Australian Women Donors Network is delighted to present this Online
Project Showcase, in an effort to connect our growing community of
philanthropic funders to the many wonderful organisations whose projects
benefit women and girls. This free service is one of our initiatives to
bring to life the enormous need required in the community, and we hope
that you find an organisation here that may benefit from your 'time,
talent or treasure'.

Hear from donors who have successfully used the Showcase tool ...
The Kimberley Foundation:
"As a foundation that relies on our own research in order to find relevant projects and organisations we regularly check the Women's Donor Network's Online Project Showcase. It is a terrific tool which we used successfully this year (2011), finding a project which matched both our specific funding area and our budget. The showcase is easy to use and information about the organisations and the projects is clearly set out and easy to access."
The Becher Foundation:
"The Becher Foundation supports projects in developing countries as part of its commitment to social justice. We prioritise projects that improve the lives of women and girls, recognising that this is one of the more effective strategies to reduce poverty. The Becher Foundation looks for high-quality projects that are a good fit with its social justice priorities and we immediately found a project of interest through the Showcase. It was a simple process for us. Once we’d seen the Banteay Srei Safe House project that the International Women’s Development Agency had posted on the Showcase, we got in touch, sent our guidelines and asked for an application. IWDA were efficient and professional in their response. Once we’d reviewed the application we were delighted to fund it for the full amount of $20,000 requested."
AND GRATEFUL RECIPIENTS ...
Women's Property Initiatives:
"Women's Property Initiatives (WPI) is delighted to be able to announce (June 2015) that we have raised the full amount for their 'Building a future for disadvantaged women and children in Melbourne' Project as showcased on the Women's Donors Network (WDN) website."
"Through the initial immensely generous donation from the Estate of the Late Edward Wilson, sourced via WDN, WPI has since secured the full amount required to complete this project debt free. The profile and ongoing advocacy provided through WDN has assisted WPI enormously in gaining this funding and consequently building a future for women and children in need. The women and children housed in these properties will live with dignity as contributing members of their community. "
"We thank in particular, Julie Reilly CEO of WDN for her ongoing support and advocacy around the work of WPI. We also thank Eve Mahlab, Chair of WDN for her amazing ongoing commitment, but also all the Board members of WDN for their commitment and work towards gender equity, highlighting the importance of the gender lens and the need to fund projects that focus on women and girls. "
International Women's Development Agency:
"We were delighted when the Becher Foundation approached us as a result of seeing the project listed on the site, and invited us to apply for funding. The women we work with in Cambodia are excited that the vital space they operate (for women who have experienced domestic violence and/or trafficking) is secure until the end of this year, and IWDA has made a new connection with a funding organisation that recognises the value of women-focused programs."
