Joyce He, a member of Impact the Future Giving Circle, says she and her fellow giving circle members are motivated by giving back to the broader community they are living in.
“We are honoured to support Box Hill Hospital and help frontline medical teams combating the COVID-19 pandemic and protecting Australians”, says Joyce.
Members of the Giving Circle are mostly young professional Chinese Australians. They are community-minded donors from various walks of life, including professionals, entrepreneurs and students.
“Box Hill Hospital is located in an area that a large group of Chinese migrants are living in. It also has emotional ties for our members, as many have family and friends living near the hospital”, explains Joyce.
“As a giving circle, our mission is to raise awareness and empower change within the community, by supporting charities that protect our environment, support families and the wider community.”
“We would like to be a bridge connecting the Chinese community with mainstream society in Australia”, says Joyce.
“With COVID-19 spreading all around the world, we are very proud to have opportunities to contribute locally via Box Hill Hospital, and to assist combating the global pandemic.”
Impact the Future is based on a ‘collective giving’ model, which is the coming together of individuals or foundations to jointly fund social change.
“The ability to scale up the impact of each individual’s contribution is incredibly powerful”, Joyce explains.
A sub-fund of the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation, Impact the Future Giving Circle’s aim is to build long-term relationships with the organisations they support.
Eastern Health Foundation looks forward to our continued partnership with Joyce and her fellow members of Impact the Future Giving Circle.
Thank you for your support!
