Impact100 Sydney is a collective of generous donors that you can join to learn more about giving back to where you live. A sub-fund of Sydney Community Foundation, it draws on our giving circle model and invites 100 people to give $1000 to raise $100,000 and to participate in deciding who will receive the funds.
At the collective’s most recent event for charities hosted at 107 Projects Redfern, Sydney Community Foundation CEO, Jane Jose, spoke about the value to charities of participating in the program and we heard first hand from last year’s $100,000 winner Leichhardt Women’s and Community Health Service about the immense benefits of the Impact 100 journey to their organization.
