Priceline Sisterhood Foundation welcomes new charity partners supporting female economic independence

The Priceline Sisterhood Foundation is proud to welcome two new Charity Partners – Fitted for Work and SisterWorks.

The charities join existing Charity Partners Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia (PANDA), Raise and Motherless Daughters, all of whom support Australian women and their families.

Fitted for Work helps women become work ready, gain secure employment and experience success in their careers by supporting the development of practical skills, knowledge and self-esteem.

SisterWorks supports migrant, refugee and asylum-seeker women to become economically empowered by helping them to develop skills, confidence and connections. It also supports women to find employment, start their own businesses and navigate the Australian system.

Chair of the Priceline Sisterhood Foundation and Wesfarmers Health Managing Director Emily Amos said: “The Priceline Sisterhood Foundation partners with charities whose programs and services will be materially strengthened thanks to the funds they receive. Fitted for Work and SisterWorks are incredible charities that empower women to become job ready and gain financial independence. The Foundation is proud to bolster the support these charities offer Australian women from diverse backgrounds and, in turn, their families.”

Fitted for Work Managing Director Donna de Zwart said: “We are thrilled to be named as a new Charity Partner of the Priceline Sisterhood Foundation. We have long admired the Foundation’s commitment to making a meaningful difference for women throughout Australia, and we can’t wait to work together to further this crucial work. This partnership will help Fitted for Work to grow our reach so that we can assist thousands more women in need across Australia.”

SisterWorks CEO Ifrin Fittock said: “SisterWorks is humbled and honoured to have been chosen as a Charity Partner of the Priceline Sisterhood Foundation. This partnership represents a coming together of shared goals to empower women and improve their lives.”

The Sisterhood Foundation was established in 2011 and has raised over $8.57m since its inception. It raised $1.21m during the 2023 ‘Stand Up for the Sisterhood’ campaign, which saw Australia’s favourite comedians Dave Hughes, Nikki Britton, Claire Hooper and Lizzy Hoo perform a charity comedy show with host Chrissie Swan.

As the Foundation welcomes two new Charity Partners, it concludes its partnership with Dementia Australia, which it has supported for 13 years.
