Empower Hour is for everyone

Empower Hour is a simple and meaningful way to engage your workplace and community around International Women's Day 2023.

At Dress for Success embracing equity isn't just a talking point, it's a movement. Join us this IWD to celebrate women and come together across Australia to #EmbraceEquity.

Individual Fundraising

Hosting a fundraising event or taking on a challenge is a fun way to engage your workplace, school, club, or community to celebrate the achievements of women while also making real change.

Simply set up a fundraising page to accompany your event, set your goal, and start planning/training! 

Clothing Drives

If you would like to host a clothing drive, please set up a fundraising page with details of your drive and contact your closest Dress for Success office for their current clothing requirements.

Due to the volume of clothing drives in Sydney a donation of $500 will be invoiced for any drives supporting Dress for Success Sydney, to help us cover administrative costs and meet our fundraising goals.
