Empowering giving for a fairer future
Australians Investing in Women (AIIW) is a leading NFP advocate for Gender-wise philanthropy.
Building on progress towards gender equity, we take an evidence-based approach and work in partnership with philanthropic, corporate and community leaders to strengthen society by catalysing investing in women and girls.
We advocate and educate within the philanthropic sector, supporting private and corporate donors, foundation boards and their staff with information, inspiration and Gender-wise tools, training and resources to embed a gender lens in philanthropic practice.
We are lean and agile national NFP working to increase philanthropic and social investment in women and girls.
