The Charitable Trust was set up in 2008 when the decision was made to sell the Brisbane Women’s club premises at Mary Street and for the Club to operate solely as a grants service. The Trustee of the Trust is the Brisbane Women’s Club.

The Trust operates to provide grants to charities in Brisbane operating in the women’s health, advocacy and education space.

Today, the Trust remains a central part of the BWC’s structure and its proceeds are applied directly to the maintenance and growing of its assets. The BWC board and CEO are responsible for the administration and distribution and management of the Trust in accordance with the Club’s Constitutional documents.
