The Channel

Great inequalities exist in Australia, especially for those who identify as LGBTIQA+. These inequalities are perpetuated by the lack of gender and sexual diversity amongst those who have financial resources and the power to allocate them. The Channel seeks to shift this unequal distribution of financial resources, and change the way Australians experience gender and sexuality for the better in two ways:

  • By channeling funds to organisations / projects that benefit those who identify as LGBTIQA+ in effective and impactful ways and;
  • By empowering individuals with modest means but big hearts to achieve a greater impact with their social investment through collective philanthropy.

The Result: The Channel will increase the share of social investment reaching these groups; providing them with the opportunity for a life of less inequality and more potential.
