Dr Deb Foskey Fund

Support women in remote, rural and regional Australia to participate in WELA’s transformative leadership programs by making a contribution
to the Dr Deb Foskey Fund.
It was established by Samara and Eleni McIlroy in honour of their mother, Deb.

Thanks to donations from people like you, WELA women have gone on to influence some of Australia’s most important and strategic campaigns and projects.

Stopped a new coal mine in New South Wales

Stopped dangerous waste incinerators in Sydney’s suburbs

Been elected to local government and state parliaments

Led campaigns to Stop Adani, build renewable energy and save essential habitat from logging

These inspiring women are reshaping our future for the better, for all of us. But we need to go so much further. The crises we face are urgent and the barriers to women’s leadership are real. You can change that.

Directly support women-led environment and climate action. And see the power it brings.
