Responding to Coronavirus
Covid-19: A time for community and philanthropy leadership.
Most of us have never lived through a time when the whole nation feels the impact of serious health and economic risk.
It’s a time for all of us to be kind as we look after our families and communities. We know vulnerable people in our community have fewer choices and will be impacted more than others.
Thanks to you our donors and community we’ve been able to provide much needing funding to approximately 80% of the projects we set out to support!
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 2020.
MULTI-YEAR GREATER SYDNEY HUBS
Since 2014, our Place-Based Philanthropy program has given multi-year support to a network of charity partner “Hubs", thanks to the generous donors of Sydney Women’s Fund.
We continue to support the communities of Warwick Farm (Liverpool), Claymore (Campbelltown), Fairfield and now Bankstown.
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.
NEW HUBS: INNER CITY
Since 2008, Sydney Sydney Women’s Fund has been funding programs to support women and girls in Greater Sydney. The design and selection of projects here is a response to the findings of Sydney Women’s Fund’s Portrait III: Hopes, Fears and Dreams of Sydney Women.
