Covid-19: immediate & long-term relief
Be Kind Sydney Covid-19 Appeal is a special Relief Fund allowing us to use the combined knowledge of Sydney Community Foundation and Sydney Women’s Fund of local Sydney and NSW grassroots charities to grow philanthropy so we can ensure the wellbeing, mental health, and basic needs of our vulnerable are met.
If a million people made a small act of kindness and went without one cup of coffee and gave the cost to help someone in need, it would make a huge difference right now to the lives of many people struggling in Sydney as the impacts of coronavirus deepen.
Every dollar makes a difference.
MULTI-YEAR PLACE-BASED 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.
