Thanks to Hands Across Canberra!

We were excited to be selected to receive a grant from Hands Across Canberra for $15,000. We are pleased that Hands Across Canberra recognised the potential of the Assistance Beyond Crisis microfinance facility and wanted to provide support so that there are options for local ACT women and men (and their children) who have escaped from domestic violence situations and re-established their lives, but who then find themselves with a financial need and are unable to access other appropriate assistance. Hands Across Canberra works with around 140 Canberra charities, and we are grateful to have been selected to receive the grant this year.  Hands Across Canberra encourages philanthropy and helps to keep the wealth created locally within the Canberra community.

Thanks to the Funding Network!

We are excited to announce that WCHM has been selected to pitch at The Funding Network> live crowdfunding event on September 21 in Canberra! The event aims to highlight three grassroots organisations who are addressing social disadvantage in the ACT community, and we will be highlighting the Assistance Beyond Crisis microfinance facility. The Funding Network is Australia’s largest collective giving movement so we will be able to share our story with a room full of people wanting to support and create big change in Canberra.
