Who We Support

The Charitable Works Fund (CWF) is a centralised fund dedicated to the support of the charitable and pastoral activities of the Archdiocese.

The CWF is administered by a committee representing parishes, the Archdiocese and the agencies which are supported by the CWF.

The committee meets regularly to oversee the three appeals conducted each year through the parishes, to set parish assessments and supervise the distribution of funds to the agencies.

It is your charity, the charity of the Sydney Catholic community and your local parish.

The CWF funds the following ministries:

The generosity of those who contribute financially to the CWF, means that these agencies are able to assist thousands of people each year.

Demand for the services for the agencies supported by the CWF has never been greater.

Your contribution to the CWF will help ensure the continued viability of their work. Please consider making a donation or bequest to the CWF. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and can be credited to your local parish.
