Here is your reminder of the importance of having a will and keeping it current!

Celebrating Champions, Campaigners and Change-makers

Otautahi Christchurch has a proud tradition of women facilitating ground-breaking societal change. In order to recognise the women of the past, and the ensure that this proud legacy continues, we formed a fund to support women and girls who are change makers.

Join us for high tea at the Canterbury Club where we will announce and celebrate the 2020 award recipients with guest speaker Minister Poto Williams. Part of the ticket price covers the costs and the rest goes to next year’s recipients so it’s a constant flow of ongoing support for our next generation of female leaders in the city.

Women's Fund Leadership Speaker Series: Joanna Norris

The Christchurch Foundation Women’s Fund isn’t only about supporting female leaders with grants. We are also drawing on Ōtautahi Christchurch’s proud legacy of change-makers, like Kate Sheppard, to fight for social equity.
