Operating since 1887, the Queen’s Fund supports single women in Victoria who need emergency financial relief due to family violence, mental illness, or medical issues by providing grants of up to $350.
We are different because we can provide flexible financial support that considers the personal and unique circumstances of each applicant to create the most impact, paying for things like rent, household bills, medication, transport or refurbished computers for education often within 24 hours if needed.
In fact, 100% of the donations we receive go directly to women to provide short-term support to get their lives back on track. This is because our committee is unpaid and we have very low overheads. Any overheads we do have are covered by a historical bequest.
