DO Supports

100 Women is a Perth based giving circle. Our vision is to ignite women's philanthropy through the power of collective giving, to advance the empowerment of all women. Members of a giving circle pool their financial contributions together to have a larger impact on the charities they support. As the name indicates we aim to gather 100 women (or men) who will all donate $1200 annually, so that together we can give away $120,000 to worthy grant recipients. 100 Women will focus on causes that champion women, in the areas of health, education and safety. All donations will be fully tax deductable and 100% of membership donations is given out in grants. 100 Women enables everyday people to be involved in creating a world where all women and girls can live safely with access to health, education and economic freedom. We do this by combining donations and knowledge to provide impactful grants. For more information on 100 Women or if you’re interested in becoming a member please view our website.
