It all started when...
A small group of NSW Rural Fire Service members saw the potential within their unique, community minded organisation, to set up a charity that supported children in need.
A workplace giving scheme was established that encouraged members to donate the equivalent of the cost of a cup of coffee a week to the Coffee4Kids Foundation, and they in turn would pass that donation on to partnering children's charities and organisations.
Over time, Coffee4Kids grew to encompass more than workplace giving, receiving donations and support from individuals and organisations unrelated to the NSW Rural Fire Service.
What we have achieved so far...
Through regular workplace giving, NSW Rural Fire Service members continue to contribute to the health and well-being of sick children at The Children's Hospital Westmead at around $28,000 per year.
Through various fundraising events, including the Coffee4Kids Balls, more than $350,000 has been raised since the Foundation's inception.
