The James N. Kirby Foundation
 has supported the work of The Infants' Home since the foundation’s inception in 1967.

Throughout 2012, the foundation continued to fund a sustainable future for The Infants' Home so we can expand our services to children and families, especially those in vulnerable circumstances.

Long term supporter

The James N. Kirby Foundation has pledged $300,000 over three years for our new early education and care centre, which will take children for the first time on July 1.

The foundation has also been a long term supporter of the Sydney Hope Family Cottage, our postnatal sleeping and settling clinic.

Innovation and attention to detail

The Chairman of the James N. Kirby Foundation Board, Margaret Kirby, Board member Helen Kirby, and Kay McDowall, Manager – Grants Administration for the James N. Kirby Foundation had a tour of our new early education and care centre.

Kay McDowall says everyone was very impressed with the development, especially the innovation and attention to detail on all the centre's internal and external aspects.

"The James N Kirby Foundation is so proud to be associated with the world-class operation you have there, and we look forward to seeing all the new changes in the future," Kay says.
