Learn more about Sydney Community Foundation

For two decades Sydney Community Foundation has dedicated itself to reducing inequities across our city. 

Sydney Community Foundation is an independent, community-led foundation, run by Sydneysiders for Sydneysiders. 

Since 2004, we’ve raised and connected more than $25 million to grassroots charities and enabled the work of thousands of passionate changemakers all over Sydney.

Our vision

A community where people give together, to make Sydney strong and just. We partner with philanthropists, community and advocacy leaders, businesses and key figures in state and federal government. We channel and leverage the resources, knowledge and talents within our network of donors and supporters. This collective effort allows us to create long-lasting impact and build a more equitable and vibrant future for all Sydneysiders.

We partner with grassroots organisations and fund programs that nurture strong, vibrant communities. We invest for the long term and work to solve issues facing our communities. We are steadfast and unwavering in our commitment to the city.
