Local Belrose initiative to drive social change
The Morrison Government is backing-in an innovative Belrose business with a $140,000 investment that will drive social change.
Minister for Families and Social Services Anne Ruston said ticketing platform Humanitix in Belrose would receive the funding to attract private investment to grow their operations.
“Ticketing platform Humanitix redirects all profits from booking fees to projects that promote social inclusion and education for kids,” Minister Ruston said.
“They have delivered 150,000 meals for kids, 1700 days of scholarships for indigenous students and 52,000 days of education for at risk girls.
“Humanitix will use the funding to attract social investors to grow their business so that can deliver more resources for people across New South Wales.”
Member for Mackellar Jason Falinski said Humanitix is doing great work in the Belrose and New South Wales community addressing areas of social need and is making a difference to people’s lives.
“By providing this local organisation with $140,000 of specialist business support they will build their capacity to deliver more meals for kids, scholarships and educational opportunities,” he said.
The grant has been allocated under the Morrison Government’s $7 million Sector Readiness Fund.
The Sector Readiness Fund is administered by Impact Investing Australia. Social enterprises are encouraged to apply: www.investmentready.com.au
