Inspiring Your Giving 2020 presents almost $1 Million of priority projects responding to the needs of vulnerable women and diverse communities across Greater Sydney.
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.
• Overcoming Financial Vulnerability

Together, we're breaking down barriers so women can successfully complete their studies and forge pathways to employment and financial independence. Financial Scholarships and mentoring for talented girls and young women facing disadvantage.
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.
We know supporting women builds stronger communities.
NEW HUBS: INNER CITY
Youth Education forms a critical part of our Place-Based Philanthropy programs across Greater Sydney. Scholarships, safe spaces, alternative learning and assisting with mental health for our vulnerable young people at-risk who may not have strong family support.

Be Kind Sydney Covid-19 Appeal
The Covid-19 situation is evolving as is the impact on our local communities and how our charity partners respond. Together with our donors, Sydney Women's Fund is supporting the Be Kind Sydney Covid-19 Appeal.
In a survey with our charity partners in March 2020, we learnt that 80% experienced an increase in demand for their services. Working with the restrictions many found they had to scale their responses within their community, many working tirelessly to secure food and other supplies for those in need.
Your donation will pay for food, delivery costs and ensuring safety equipment is available for volunteers dedicating their time to give help where it is needed most.
It will also support our charity partners continue to provide education and employment programs for women, girls and families, critical in these challenging times.
We are seeking donations to support our charity partners and their front line responses.
Please Be Kind Sydney and donate now to support innovative local change makers.
Every dollar makes a difference.
