‘StreetFunder’ is our Monthly Giving program. Each month we seek out and fund a different project and provide you with feedback on your community impact. Join us to be at the forefront of funding and supporting innovative projects with real impact for people who are homeless or at risk.

PROJECT OF THE MONTH – February 2017

The Footpath Library

One evening, Sarah Garnett, founder of The Footpath Library, noticed a man sitting under a streetlight reading a novel while waiting for the food van where she volunteered. She started bringing him a few books and it was from this humble beginning that the original Footpath Library grew. Now in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, The Footpath Library collects donated books from the public and publishers and gives away free books to people living on the street via our mobile services and through libraries we have installed and stock in hostels, refuges and community organisations. The February StreetFunder support will help fund the operations of The Footpath Library resulting in the distribution of around 3,000 books this month to libraries installed in hostels and refuges and via our mobile services.
Books help keep people healthy and happy, and truly are food for the mind and soul!
