Be a part of the fastest growing trend in philanthropy

The Impact 100 model is simple. 100 donations of $1,000 are combined to raise $100,000 annually and granted to an organisation that can have a real and measurable impact.

Whilst we are the first group to establish this model of philanthropy for Sydney - we are one of 60 communities around the world that see enormous benefits in collective giving.

Giving circles such as the Impact 100 concept can offer an opportunity to experience philanthropy – inclusive, engaging and enriching groups of community minded people, who want to give – in the hope that they will grow their giving over time.

Each year our donors will decide where Sydney has the greatest need - such as youth, environment, health, arts, and so on.  Our donors will also vote for which project to support.

In 2016, we are supporting a project up to $100,000 that is focused on making a positive difference to the lives of Sydney’s young people. 

We believe that all Sydneysiders should have access to opportunity.  We know that this isn’t the case and that one in six young Australians is living in poverty and that youth unemployment is on the rise.  Coupled with a range of social problems such as inter-generational poverty, youth suicide, disability, drug and alcohol abuse and domestic violence – the needs of Sydney’s young people are both broad and complex.
