About #BackMelbourne

#BackMelbourne is a campaign by Melburnians to help Melburnians, coordinated by Impact100 Melbourne. Impact100 Melbourne is a sub-fund of the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation. We are a collective giving group where 100 people come together and each give $1,000.  With this money the group can make a single large impact grant of $100,000 to a local charity.

Over the past few years we have already donated over $500,000 to charitable organisations around the city, and know that right now our community needs us more than ever. 

How it works

  • Impact100 Melbourne is a giving circle where 100 people come together and each give $1,000.  With this money the group can make a single large impact grant of $100,000 to a local charity. 

  • Every member of Impact 100 who donates $1,000 receives a vote in where our funding goes.

“It was upsetting to see big changes in my neighbourhood since COVID-19 hit. I wanted to find a way to contribute and help those who had been most affected."
