Upcoming Events

IMPACT100 Sydney Networking Drinks, 20 June 2024

Please join IMPACT100 Sydney on June 20 at 6pm, for an opportunity to hear from the 2023 grant recipients and find out first-hand how your donation is changing the lives of vulnerable communities in Sydney.  Our discussion will be facilitated by Dom Row, CEO of Homelessness NSW.

Last year we had the opportunity to fund two amazing Sydney charities – The Haven Nepean Women’s Health Shelter and the House of Welcome.

Hearing back from last year’s grant recipients is always a wonderful opportunity to connect with other donors. You are welcome to bring a friend (or more!) so they too can gain a greater insight into the IMPACT100 Sydney process, and connect with like-minded people keen to support their community. 

Date: Thursday 20th June 2024.
Time: 6 – 8pm
Location: Canva Space, 110 Kippax Street, Surry Hills, NSW 2010.
