Charitable Works Fund

The Charitable Works Fund (CWF) is a centralised fund that supports the charitable and pastoral activities of the Archdiocese of Sydney.

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

The CWF funds six ministries:

  • Aboriginal Catholic Ministry - promoting reconciliation and mutual understanding and providing pastoral care for Catholic Aboriginals and supporting them in the living of their Faith.
  • CatholicCare - Stands in the Catholic tradition of compassion and concern for social justice. Its role is to facilitate the development of individuals, families and communities most in need through quality services, research and advocacy. As the official Catholic social service agency for the Archdiocese of Sydney, CatholicCare serves all people without regard to religion, race, economic circumstance or ethnic background. 
  • Chaplaincies - Our chaplaincy services in hospital, prisons and universities provide much needed support to the lonely, sick, hurt and suffering in the community.
  • Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) - provides religious education and Christian formation for Catholic children in public schools.
  • Ephpheta Centre - provides services to the deaf and hearing impaired including sacramental, counselling, support and advocacy services.
  • The Seminaries are assisted by the CWF with the payment of tuition fees for Archdiocesan Seminarians at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd, the Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary and studying overseas students.

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.

Thank you for supporting your charity.
