Teach­ing young peo­ple joy of giv­ing

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Fremantle Foun­da­tion wants to en­tice more young peo­ple to dig into their pock­ets to help the area’s most im­por­tant com­mu­nity groups and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions.

As the pro­file of Im­pact100 Fremantle con­tin­ues to grow, lo­cals un­der the age of 39 now have an added in­cen­tive to take part in the an­nual $100,000 fundraiser.

With the help of the Mor­gridge Fam­ily Foun­da­tion and the Im­pact100 Coun­cil, the Young Phi­lan­thropist Pro­gram and Im­pact100 Coun­cil Match­ing Agree­ment gives three lo­cal young peo­ple the chance to have their an­nual $1000 do­na­tions sub­sidised to vary­ing de­grees.

Fremantle Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Dy­lan Smith said they were thrilled to be able to of­fer this op­por­tu­nity to young phi­lan­thropists.

“I think there is some­times the as­sump­tion only peo­ple who are in­cred­i­bly wealthy, and per­haps more es­tab­lished, can be phi­lan­thropists, but giv­ing can be for every­one,” he said.

“This slid­ing scale in­vites the young phi­lan­thropist to bud­get over time and em­bed the phi­los­o­phy of giv­ing into their lives.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for new donors to join us and we want to en­cour­age as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble in Fremantle to get in­volved, in­clud­ing younger donors.”
