Help Welcome Ukranians to Sydney
Sydney Community Foundation urges Sydneysiders to welcome displaced Ukrainians and help them feel at home in Sydney.
We are fundraising to support much needed housing and rental assistance, establishing bank accounts, mobile phone access, childcare support and other essential services.
All donations $2 and over are tax deductible.
Together we are building stronger communities
Across Greater Sydney locals are accessing support from Sydney Community Foundation. Collective giving by individuals, foundations and corporates across the city has enabled the foundation to share more than $12 million in grants and funding for grassroots Sydney charities and their impactful programs.
The changemakers we fund know their communities and their needs. They find innovative ways to increase belonging, to provide education and employment pathways, to build safety and independence for women and families and to postivively transform comunities and place.
Together, we’re building stronger, safer communities.
How we create change
Our community partners work with people, one-by-one, focusing on those experiencing disadvantage, tailoring support to the unique needs of each person in our community.
Our secret? Our place-based approach, our community knowledge and the capacity building support we offer the charities we fund. Every donation to Sydney Community Foundation contributes to a new opportunity for a person or a family seeking a better future.
Janette is a wife, a mother, and now sewing machinist from Syria. Arriving to Australia with three teenagers she did not know anyone or have any opportunity to work.
Thanks to our Sydney Women’s Fund donors at Sydney Community Foundation, Janette accessed a sewing class and mentorship program with Australian design house Ginger & Smart and now works part time at The Social Outfit.
“There is no limit in the life to learn."
Janette now feels safe and optimistic about the future, for herself and her children. That's the power of opportunity.
Over half a million Sydneysiders are living in poverty.
