Funding

As a community funded organisation we rely heavily on very special group of Major Donors and our community to support the Shelter. Together they make it possible for our organisation to continue operating our vital residential service for homeless women of the Northern Beaches.

Because of their consistent generosity, today we’re a strong organisation, helping as many peninsula women as possible. 

Submissions for financial grants are made to Government, corporations and foundations. We are the proud recipients of consecutive-year grants made by the Fussell Family Foundation, Mary Alice Foundation, Westpac Community Fund and Myer Community Fund. These generous Foundations actively support the on-going operational costs of our essential service and importantly enables critical service improvements.

We sincerely thank all our donors and community partners for their ongoing commitment to the cause of female homelessness. Some of our major donors and community partners are listed below.
