Will you help keep
families safe from
harm?

Imagine how it feels to tell your children why you are covered in bruises. Imagine trying to put on a brave face when your bones are broken and your confidence is shattered.

Even when a woman escapes a violent home, she is not safe.

We desperately need your help to protect families escaping domestic violence. Please donate to our ‘Appeal for Lauren’.

You can also make a general donation to the Foundation, or donate to one of our four programs, using the form below. All donations above $2 are tax-deductible.

Learn more about our programs

Support tertiary education for young people growing up in out-of-home care

Only 3% of young people who are unable to grow up at home safely with their birth parents pursue education after high school, compared to 40% of other young people. We give financial support so our scholarship recipients can afford study expenses such as course fees and textbooks, as well as the cost of living on their own with no parental support.

Support community organisations that help people living in disadvantage and isolation

Every year the Foundation provides individual grants of up to $15,000 to a range of innovative community projects that break down social isolation and alleviate the impact of poverty on individuals and families. We support initiatives that benefit disadvantaged, marginalised and socially isolated people in our community, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age or ability.

Provide safe housing and essential services for asylum seekers

More than 70% of asylum seekers receive no government support, leaving them at risk of homelessness. The Foundation partners with the Asylum Seekers Centre to provide safe accommodation and welfare services to dozens of displaced people every year.

Give hope to survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking in Australia

There are an estimated 15,000 people living in slavery-like conditions in Australia today. Through a partnership with The Salvation Army, we are delivering housing for survivors in a new model aimed at transitioning them to independent living.

Why should you donate to the Sisters of Charity Foundation?

We’re here for everyone in need: The Sisters of Charity Foundation funds programs and initiatives that support people who are marginalised or living in disadvantage, no matter their gender, ethnicity, age or ability.

Measurable and proven results: Since the year 2000 we’ve granted more than $9.4 million to over 970 community-based programs across Australia that receive little or no funding from other sources.

We work collaboratively: We believe in partnering with other organisations to provide assistance where it’s needed most. One of our most rewarding partnerships has been with the Asylum Seekers Centre, assisting with the upkeep of Providence House, which provides emergency housing for asylum seekers.

Real people, real stories: We regularly publish case studies and stories from program participants, giving you the best possible insight into where your donation goes.

Your donation will change lives

Perhaps the most rewarding reason to donate is knowing that your donation will have real outcomes and change lives. Donate now using the form below, or call us on 02 9367 1211 to donate over the phone.
