The School for Social Entrepreneurs was thrilled to be awarded with a grant today from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation in Melbourne.
CEO Benny Callaghan and I, along with many other Melbourne charities, enjoyed a great morning at the Foundation’s “Celebration of Giving” event, held in the beautiful Regent Theatre. This event revealed the generosity of the Foundation and the significant impact that has been made, and will continue to be made, through the Foundation’s philanthropic investments in Melbourne.
Support from the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation is for two bursary placements in SSE’s Melbourne 2011 program. This support, as well as support from a range of other Foundations, corporates and individuals, will make an incredible difference to Australia’s social entrepreneurs and the communities they serve.
Here’s a pic of Benny and Rebecca Scott, CEO of Streat, at the event.
