2021 Grant Finalists

We’re delighted to announce our 2021 grant finalists – six inspiring projects from exceptional organisations supporting women and girls in communities around the world.

With COVID-19 restrictions continuing to impact communities – and women and girls frequently the most affected – the work of organisations such as our grant finalists is more important than ever. Please take the time to review the projects put forward for funding by our finalists – as 100 Women members, you have the power to decide who will receive funds from our 2021 grants pool.

Congratulations to all our finalists, and good luck!

Please note, voting is open from Wednesday, 1 September to Wednesday, 15 September.

All 100 Women members will receive a personalised email containing a unique link to the 2021 grants voting site – if you haven’t received your link, please make sure to contact our team by emailing grants@100women.com.au

The results of voting will be announced at our 2021 Gala Celebration on Friday 22 October at Westin Perth, where the successful projects will be presented with their grants.
