Jenny’s valuable support
Jenny* contributes to Berry Street both through her own Private Ancillary Fund and also through an account she holds at Australian Communities Foundation. Her interest in and commitment to Berry Street has increased exponentially, starting from regular annual contributions of $50 decades ago to substantial philanthropic gifts today.
Her approach is informed, structured, and a great example of effective philanthropy. Jenny’s four key interest areas are indigenous health and education; climate change; asylum seekers and refugees; and the prevention of homelessness among young people.
She is involved with Berry Street’s Stand By Me program, which supports young people who have recently left care to transition to independence, and she also provides funding for Boofa, a therapy dog at Berry Street. We thank Jenny for the significant impact she has made through her valuable support over the years.
