CommBank Foundation Centenary Grants

StreetWork would like to acknowledge the contribution that we've recently received from the CommBank Foundation (formally known as the Staff Community Fund) as part of their centenary of giving celebrations which will be used to support more 'at risk' young people to turn their lives around through our KickStart Mentoring Program.

The CommBank employee giving program commenced in 1917, where through their staff 'care packages' were sent to fighting Australians during the First World War.  When it ended, staff continued their fundraising efforts, buying cots for children in hospital and then in the decades that followed their focus was on young people in needed.
