We are completely overwhelmed by the generosity of our community in supporting our first ever Giving Day. After quickly surpassed our original target of $200,000, and our final figure of $442,660 is beyond our wildest dreams.

Thank you to all who donated, this will change the lives of women and children experiencing homelessness and help us to keep opening doors to new homes. This is an extremely important step in securing the remaining 16 homes of our 25 new homes by 2025 goal.

Thank you to our amazing matching partners, Built, the Hupert Family Foundation, the Wood Foundation, Collier Charitable Fund, the Jack and Ethel Goldin Foundation, Ede Horton, the Scalzo Family and Catalyst Development Services. Your generosity and commitment was crucial to this initiative and inspired a lot of giving.

Our enthusiastic fundraising teams at Equality Media, Bates Smart, Duo Projects and Built achieved some outstanding results by spreading the word within their networks and encouraging their colleagues and friends to give.

Thanks also to all those who shared our messages and posts and helped make others aware of the Giving Day. You are all part of this success.
