You can set up a Sub-Fund in honour of a special woman – it may be a family member, friend or someone you admire.
We work with you to identify a specific issue or issues affecting women and girls in Victoria that is of particular interest to you or reflects the woman you are honouring.
A Sub-Fund is also a great way to involve your family or organisation in the experience of giving.
I feel immensely privileged to be able to remember my mother in this way… And I know that it would give my mother great pleasure too.
– Hilary Irwin, Con Irwin Sub-Fund endowee
