For almost half a century, the Melbourne Press Club has been supporting and celebrating great journalism in Victoria and throughout Australia. More than ever, we are playing a vital role defending the importance of a free and diverse media to the health of our democracy.

Now we are seeking your help to maintain and expand our programs to enable quality journalism and develop the next generation of journalists. The Melbourne Press Club Public Fund has been approved to accept tax-deductible donations of $2 and above.

Gifts to our Public Fund will be used to offer fellowships – such as our Michael Gordon Fellowships for social justice journalism – scholarships and grants. They will also contribute to programs for young journalists and journalism students with mentoring, skills development and awards.
