How Be Kind Sydney is helping local people in need

“My biggest fear is having to work into my
70’s and struggling to find real long-term work
beyond contract or casual positions."

Who we support

Be Kind Sydney is an initiative of Sydney Women’s Fund and Sydney Community Foundation fundraising for programs to enrich and transform the Greater Sydney community and beyond. Below are some of the community organisations that have received valuable support.

“This program made me feel I can do anything in this industry and brought back my confidence."

Major Supporters

Supported by major foundations, corporate partnerships and government, Be Kind Sydney is able to provide multi-year sustainable funding to grassroots programs creating opportunities for women and families across Greater Sydney.

A time for leadership and generosity

Multi-year Greater Sydney Hubs

Since 2014, our Place-Based Philanthropy program has given multi-year support to our network of local charity partner “hubs" thanks to YOU, our generous donors.

We continue to support the communities of Warwick Farm (Liverpool), Claymore (Campbelltown), Fairfield and now Bankstown, Inner West including Newtown and Redfern, along with South Western Sydney – St George and Sutherland Shire, and North Sydney.

Listening to local communities, we co-design with charity partners and support a range of proven programs and new pilot projects building social and economic resilience in postcodes of greatest need.

Together with our local charity partners and you, we're building stronger Sydney communities.

There is still time to give and every dollar makes a difference. 

Please donate and know your gift will change the life of Sydneysiders having a tough time in 2021.
