The Ruth Owens and Kevin Lynch Sub Fund

The Trustees of the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust established the Ruth Owens and Kevin Lynch Sub Fund in 2019. The Sub-Fund is thanks to the vision and generosity of Ruth Owens and Kevin Lynch.

Ruth and Kevin believe Equality means you have to give something up and that is what this Sub-Fund aims to do. They’re ready to help improve the lives of women and their children who are reaching for a better life.

This Sub Fund will provide practical help at critical times that can create real and lasting positive change for women experiencing socio-economic hardship. It will support grassroots projects that address and enhance educational and employment opportunities for:

  • single women as parents
  • refugee and migrant women
