Impact100 Sydney 2021 Grant Recipient
We are very pleased to share with you that our Impact100 $100k Grant Recipient this year is Shine for Kids – in partnership with Confit Pathways.
A huge congratulations to all four finalists for stellar pitches and programs. We extend our thanks and gratitude to all of them for being a part of our granting process.
We are also pleased to confirm we will be able to support Little Dreamers, Youth InSearch & Weave each with a grant of $10,000, thanks to the wonderful generosity and collective effort from our membership this year!
We look forward to connecting with Shine for Kids and Confit Pathways over the next 12 months and beyond, as they launch their program focused on the emotional, educational and social support of 80 young people currently in Juvenile Justice facilities in Sydney. This unique program starts while the young person is in the system and follows them for 9 months after their release.
For anyone that wants to revisit the finalists pitches, you can find them here.
We also extend a huge thanks to you for your ongoing support. We hope you have found the experience of being an Impact100 Sydney member as rewarding as we have.
Each and everyone one of you has had an impact on improving the lives of young people in our community – and for this we say THANK YOU!
Many of our members have already confirmed their support for next year. If you are inspired to do the same, you can do so here.
As mentioned throughout the year, 2021 marked a wonderful milestone for Impact100 Sydney – now collectively granting over half a million dollars back in to the community to support young people at risk. We are committed to building on this and hope you will join with us in working toward doubling this impact – starting with striving for $200,000 in 2022.
We will be in touch again shortly to get your feedback and input in to our 2022 grant focus area and look forward to connecting with you again in the new year!
