What is The Mindful Wealth Movement?
Financial wellbeing is an important element of total wellness. If we do not have a good relationship with, or control over our finances then it has the potential to impact our health, relationships, stress levels, sense of purpose and all other areas of our lives.
Our campaign aims to increase the financial capability and wellbeing of vulnerable Australian women. Some women are more vulnerable to financial shocks than others, particularly those who have experienced relationship breakdown, who are single parents or who are not in full-time employment.
The mindful wealth movement is a uniquely feminine financial literacy program that incorporates traditional financial planning concepts with mindfulness, personal development, behavioural change and life skills to build positive money beliefs and behaviours.
With your help we will be able to run more workshops and programs with established additional charity partners in South East Queensland and support vulnerable women to build their financial capability.

Why should you support THE MINDFUL WEALTH MOVEMENT campaign?
- Help empower another woman - for life! The lack of financial well-being experienced by women has far reaching and long-term impacts. If we reach the tipping point, we estimate 150+ women (including those impacted by family violence or relationship breakdown) in the Logan and Brisbane areas will be empowered towards greater financial and personal well-being.
- Lead the way to financial wellness. Join the movement towards financial well-being. Gift a scholarship to another woman or join a collective conversation around money to help build confidence and healthy financial habits and behaviours. Or take advantage of our special crowdfunding price to use our online course to support your own journey to mindful wealth.
- Help us make our abundance affirmation cards available to the world. This new inspirational deck of cards is a perfect gift to create empowering changes in money mindset. This product will only be produced if our tipping point is reached!
Additionally, for every $250 dollars pledged above the tipping point we will offer an additional scholarship to our online program. We want every woman to have the opportunity to develop her financial capability and take charge of her relationship with money. It can truly be life-changing.
By supporting our campaign, you can be sure that you are giving a gift not just to yourself but also to other women in need.
