Christmas has come early for 17 charities across regional NSW, each receiving a share of more than $800,000 funding from Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation for local community projects.

The charities were formally presented with their cheques today in a special event on the rooftop of Newcastle Permanent.

Charitable Foundation Chairman Michael Slater said many not-for-profit organisations rely on corporate philanthropic support to offer their programs and services to the community and the Charitable Foundation is proud to be able to help make this a reality.

“The real recipients of this funding are the people in need that these charities help; the men, women and children who now have access to services, programs and projects to help improve their lives,” Mr Slater said.

“Locally in the Hunter, this funding will support 11 new community projects and initiatives that focus on community health and wellbeing, youth development and mentoring, social inclusiveness and training and education.

“Christmas is a time to say thanks and the Charitable Foundation would also like to acknowledge the staff and volunteers of these charities who work tirelessly all disadvantaged members of our community,” Mr Slater said.

Some of the local charities to receive funding include the Autoimmune Resource and Research Centre, United Hospital Auxiliary – Mater Hospital, Hunter Youth Mentor Collaborative, Family Insight and PCYC Nelson Bay.

Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation distributes more than $1.5 million annually to local not-for-profit organisations in the Hunter, New England, Central West, Central Coast, Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast.
