Engender Community

Welcome to the Engender fellowship – where community solidarity can transform lives. Our mission is straightforward: We work to empower and inform victim-survivors, and eliminate family violence. Your financial contributions will become a powerful force for positive change, emphasising shared power and collective action.

Join us in this journey of compassion and transformation, working together to create a more equitable and just future for all. Many people and families in Tasmania live with the impact of family violence. Your donation will help us support those affected by family violence.

As a not-for-profit service, we rely on community donations and corporate sponsors which allows us to expand our vital services. Money donated to Engender Equality is spent efficiently to reduce the incidence and impact of family violence.

Our Deductible Gift Recipient status with the Australian Taxation Office means that any donation above $2 is tax deductible.

“My therapist is the best I have ever had, she has helped me beyond measure. My sessions with her were empowering and affirming. Engender Equality has totally changed my life.” – Eleni

How to get involved

At Engender Equality, we believe in the collective strength of diverse support. There are numerous ways you can contribute to our mission of ending family violence:

  • A donation from your workplace. Some workplaces encourage staff to donate money to a charity or will ask staff to choose a charity for the company or businesses to make a donation to. This occasion might coincide with Christmas or another notable annual event.
  • If you are a victim-survivor look into our Advocates for Change program.
  • Follow Engender Equality on Facebook, Instagram, Linked In and YouTube and ‘like’ or share our content.
  • Do your contacts and professional networks know what we do? Refer them to the Engender Equality website: www.engenderequality.org.au.
  • Keep some Engender Equality brochures in your car or office and share them when you can.
  • Keep us in mind when you encounter training opportunities related to family violence and gender inequality – is there a role for Engender Equality? Purchase an Engender Equality sticker, or make them available for sale at your workplace.
  • Host a morning tea, afternoon tea or lunch with proceeds donated to Engender Equality.
  • Invite Engender Equality to provide training or a thought-provoking presentation at your workplace, club or community group.
