Max­i­mum im­pact

Fremantle Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Leah Roberts

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.
