THE finalists in Fremantle Foundation’s Impact100 campaign all have one goal in mind: to expand their programs to help the community.
Impact100 inspires at least 100 donors to contribute $1000 each, with the money put towards high impact grants for local charities and projects.
This year’s four finalists are the Fremantle Community Men’s Shed, ICEA Foundation, Black Swan Health and Fremantle PCYC.
Community Men’s Shed president Bill Johnstone said the shed was a place where people could go to make things for themselves or the community.
ICEA foundation representative Dakota Baker said it was a youth-led not-for-profit group with Indigenous and non-Indigenous facilitators going into schools and talking about reconciliation.
Black Swan Health’s Sarah Tadier said they ran Freo Street Doctor, which works with disadvantaged and marginalised members of the community to give them primary and mental health care at no cost.
Fremantle PCYC’s Julie Gorman said the PCYC had begun a breakfast club for young people who did not have the option to have breakfast at home.
Tickets for the Impact100 Fremantle Voting and Awards night will be available from October 1.
