We would like to acknowledge the generous support made by the following organisations and businesses:
Hands Across Canberra
Thank you to Hands Across Canberra who contributes donations from Canberrans to local charities and helps to keep the wealth created locally within the Canberra community. WCHM was one of 23 local community organisations to receive a grant from Hands Across Canberra in July 2017, and the CEO of WCHM was pleased to accept a $15,000 donation towards the Assistance Beyond Crisis microfinance facility. You can find out more about Hands Across Canberra by clicking here.
In August 2017 WCHM was honoured to be named one of three finalists in Beyond Bank’s local ACT Community Reward Grant Program. There were three grants up for grabs and the prizes were based on receiving the most online votes. WCHM came in at second place and was grateful to receive a $5,000 grant to support the work we do. Thank you to Beyond Bank for their continued support of the organisation and our work.
The Funding Network
TFN is an event based collective giving model where local people come together in a social setting to support serious projects and help them reach their funding targets. In September 2017 WCHM’s CEO was one of three who pitched to the group for donations to our local ACT response, the Assistance Beyond Crisis microfinance facility. Over $79,000 was pledged from a very lively crowd of generous Canberrans.
WCHM’s thanks goes to TFN for supporting the work of small local organisations trying to make a difference, and to the generous event partners. You can read about the award here.
WCHM was delighted to be invited by Capital Giving to their 2017 Grant Giving Ceremony, where they become a bronze level sponsor for the Assistance Beyond Crisis microfinance facility. Thank you to Capital Giving, where a like-minded group of people pool their donations to provide a substantial grant to an eligible organisation each year.
