The Foundation’s mission is to sponsor, support and fund health and wellbeing initiatives that deliver clear benefits to the Jewish and general communities.

All applications were reviewed by the Foundation’s Trustee Board comprising Mr Daniel Goulburn, Mr Graham Einfeld, Dr David Golovsky, Mr Mark Hadassin, Dr Susan Hertzberg, Mrs Josephine Holland, Mr Ian Sandler and His Honour Acting Judge Mr Ronald Solomon.

Chairman Daniel Goulburn commented, “It’s a great pleasure to provide new support to the Caretakers Cottage and Jewish Alliance Against Family Violence in their great work in the areas of youth homelessness and family violence. We also made a new grant to Maccabi NSW to fund first aid training and kits for their sporting teams.”

“The Wolper Foundation also continues its support of Friends of Refugees of Eastern Europe and NCJWA NSW’s Mum for Mum program to benefit the elderly and new mothers of the community. Our long-standing support of Hatzolah continues – a life-saving first responder service for all members of the Jewish and general communities.” Daniel Goulburn added.

The following organisations’ applications for a new funding grant were supported by the Foundation:

Caretakers Cottage

Colour My Voice: art therapy for homeless kids. The program will allow participants to express their feelings in a safe context and to share their experiences.

Jewish Alliance Against Family Violence

Providing specialised training to professionals working with male perpetrators of domestic violence in order to change their behaviours.

Maccabi NSW

Providing first aid training and first aid kits for coaches and managers of Maccabi sports teams.

The following organisations reported on the positive impact they have made since receiving their previous initial grant and have received additional funds in order to continue their work:

Friends of Refugees of Eastern Europe’s (FREE) “Bis 120” senior citizens club meets on a weekly basis. Attendees are collected from their homes and to Club headquarters where they enjoy lunch and a rich program of interesting talks on Judaism, current affairs, matters of practical importance and entertainment.

According to Rabbi Yoram Ulman the Club literally prolongs attendees’ lives by relieving their loneliness and giving them something to look forward to.

MUM FOR MUM NCJWA NSW

MUM FOR MUM provides home-based support for new mothers at risk of post natal depression due to isolation, social and/or financial difficulties.

During the 12 months since MUM FOR MUM received a grant from the Foundation, 40 mothers have received support from the program.

The funding initially granted was partly used to employ a program coordinator.

Extended funding will allow the program to continue to provide a high-quality service for the Jewish and general communities and will allow a second part-time coordinator to be employed.

Hatzolah NSW

Providing a lifesaving bridge of medical care during the first critical moments of a medical emergency, whilst catering to the unique needs of the Jewish Community.

Since receiving its initial grant, Hatzolah has continued to operate and respond to medical emergencies 24/7 and has treated and cared for approximately 500 patients.

With increasing call volumes, Hatzolah will utilise its extended funding to maintain operations as well as train 6 new responders.

The Wolper Jewish Hospital Health Foundation was established in 2014 with the aim of funding health and wellbeing initiatives that will deliver clear benefits to the Jewish and general community.

The Foundation aims to support initiatives, programs, projects, services, equipment, capital purchases or assistance that will create positive health and wellbeing outcomes for the benefit of the community.
