WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

First and foremost, we put on Secret Garden because we love a fun party.

THEN WE SHARE OUR PROFITS BETWEEN SOME CHARITIES DEAR TO OUR HEARTS. IN GARDENS GONE BY WE’VE HELPED OUT…

 

OXFAM

Because of our forest disco, we run a saving and loans program in Timor Leste for farmers and their families living below the poverty line. 1,400 farmers have benefitted from the Secret Garden loans program through Oxfam.

GIRLS & BOYS BRIGADE

Secret Garden has also provided much needed social and emotional support for up to 60 kids a day through a Children’s Vacation Care Program. All the kids live on or below the poverty line in Sydney. 75% of the kids live in the local public housing estates. 

SARAH HILT FOUNDATION

Sarah Hilt is someone who is very close to us. Sarah is a local girl, who in 2009 was struck down by Meningococcal Disease. Sarah lost her legs, her left arm and all the fingers and thumb on her right hand. Since 2009, Secret Garden has raised money for Sarah’s wheelchairs, prosthetic legs and arms, 
car modifications and ski-legs (!!!)

COBBITTY PUBLIC SCHOOL

Gardeners have enabled our local and beloved primary school get a chook shed, a multi media system for the school hall and storage facilities.

How much we raise each year depends on what the festival costs to put on.
It can be affected by weather conditions,ticket sales and building infrastructure.
