Australians Investing In Women

Not-for-profits' learning circle

Australians Investing in Women (AIIW) is a leading not-for-profit organisation that advocates for Gender-wise philanthropy.

Through our work, we get many enquiries from not-for-profits about funding and fundraising, and are aware of the additional challenges faced by initiatives that have a strategic focus on women and girls.

While we are not resourced to advise or support individual organisations’ funding needs, we are empathetic to your challenges and hope that our knowledge of the philanthropic sector can help in some way.

As such, we hold these learning circles to get to know you and address questions, to explore how we might help each other in our unique missions and common purpose around gender equality.
