Collective Impact

The IMPACT100 model is simple. 100 donations of $1,000 are combined to raise $100,000 each year and granted to an organisation that can have a real and measurable impact on our city.

Impact100 Sydney’s journey


This year IMPACT100 Sydney will reach a total of $1,000,000 in grant funding over eight years. We look forward to receiving the applications for this year’s grant round, with a focus on finding changemakers in Sydney working to make a difference helping people enhance employment pathways. 


Thanks to the generosity of Community Bank Darling Square (Bendigo Bank) and their matching funding we had two $100,000 grant recipients this year, The Haven and House of Welcome. The three finalists from this year’s grant round were Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections, Community Support Services Bankstown and Plate It Forward, who each received $17,000. 


This year the major grant went to The Reconnect Project for their Closing the Digital Divide Project. The grant supported this Australian-first initiative to provide skills and employment pathways for 25 trainees while distributing 1000 repaired devices to disadvantaged families in Sydney. 


Young people were heavily impacted by COVID-19 and IMPACT100 Sydney saw this reflected in the grant submissions from this year. Shine for Kids and Confit Pathways were the major grant recipients for their program Strong Pathways Together. Additionally, this year we were delighted to award $10,000 to each of the three finalistsLittle Dreamers Australia, Weave Youth & Community Services and Youth Insearch Foundation.  


With the COVID pandemic the health and safety of our community was top of mind, so IMPACT100 Sydney decided to host the very first online livestream grant event. Stepping Stone House was the recipient of the $100,000 prize money, which went to their Stepping Stone Way Project supporting homeless and at-risk youth in Sydney. 


Open Support was the recipient of our third grant of $100,000, addressing the theme of Building Safer Communities for Children and Young People, focusing on domestic and family violence. The grant helped them provide crisis accommodation and specialised support to empower and help heal affected individuals. 


This year’s focus was on social inclusion, with the aim of supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and refugees as well as young people at risk. Our second grant of $100,000 was awarded to The Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation for its Refugee Action Support program. 


The first $100,000 grant round was focused on young people at risk in Greater Sydney. Leichhardt Women’s Community Health Centre received the major grant for its Empowering Girls to Grow career mentoring program
