How we work

We encourage local giving, to fund high impact, grassroots projects in the Greater Sydney area. Our aim is to lessen the divide and provide all Sydneysiders the opportunity to thrive.

We focus in particular on supporting local communities in need through our place-based philanthropy program and on improving the wellbeing of women and families through our Sydney Women’s Fund.

We’re guided to success by four pillars


 Safety & Independence

 Education & Employment

 Transforming Place
