SCF Sets Up Sydney Women’s Fund
Tuesday, 13th March 2007 at 3:37 pm

The Sydney Community Foundation (SCF) has set up a specific Women’s Fund that aims to raise $1 million over the next two years to reinvest in helping Sydney women.

The Sydney Women’s Fund will support programs for women in greater Sydney. The Fund will focus on four key areas: improved access to education; improved personal safety; preventive health-care; and participation in sport.

The SCF Chair, Wendy McCarthy says that from Elizabeth Macquarie, Caroline Chisholm, Maybanke Anderson and Jessie Street, Sydney women have a strong heritage of helping Sydney women.

McCarthy says the Sydney Women’s Fund provides Sydney with an opportunity to continue the work of the early pioneers and ensure the cycle of education, help, and reinvestment continues.

She says typically the fund could support literacy programs, culturally appropriate community sporting initiatives, sexual health programs and work to keep women safe in their homes.

SCF will seek funding through donations, endowments, bequests, corporate sponsorship and partnerships.

The Foundation will be encouraging Sydneysiders to also establish named funds to recognise important women in their own lives, such as grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, wives, partners or friends.

The Sydney Community Foundation was launched in 2004 and has begun to provide seed funding and grants to a number of local projects.
