GIVE Melbourne Launches to support critical community needs

Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation will launch GIVE Melbourne, a month-long digital fundraising campaign, to raise funds for critical community needs whilst also celebrating the power of community giving.

Melburnians are increasingly facing challenges like homelessness, unemployment and the harsh impacts of climate change. 

The Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Walton said, “Melbourne is often ranked highly as one of the most liveable cities in the world, however, that is not the experience or reality for many people in our community.

“The current cost of living crisis, increasing rates of unemployment for young people and lack of affordable housing has exacerbated existing community challenges.

“We’re working towards Greater Melbourne being a liveable and inclusive city for all people.”

GIVE Melbourne will support the Foundation and three important for-purpose organisations – Good Cycles, Ask Izzy and Sweltering Cities.

GIVE Melbourne is aiming to inspire at least 200 Melburnians to donate from now until 28 June. Donations of all sizes will help support communities to cope with the increasing effects of climate change, reduce homelessness and create inclusive employment opportunities for young people across Greater Melbourne. 

GIVE Melbourne will support Ask Izzy by Infoxchange (, Good Cycles (, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation ( and Sweltering Cities (

  • Ask Izzy - connecting people in need with housing, a meal, money help, family violence support and counselling.
  • Good Cycles - a social enterprise helping more young people be job ready and into work.
  • Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation – finding long-term solutions for the current and future issues our community faces such as homelessness, unemployment and climate change.
  • Sweltering Cities - empowering communities to lessen the impact of climate change and to ensure greater Melbourne is prepared for heatwaves and other disasters.
