The Exodus Foundation

After years of reading about the lack of meaningful rise in indigenous childhood literacy Reverend Bill Crews, AM, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, The Exodus Foundation decided to do something.

The Bill 108 Campaign was launched in support of building initatives at Ashfield and Redfern.  The campaign title “Bill” was enlisted because of the strength of the founder’s profile – voted a national living treaseaur, Reverend Crews is synonomus with charitable work with some of Sydney’s most disadvantaged.  We chose to use the number “108” because it represented the number of schoolchildren a proposed new facility could accommodate.

The combined campaign had a target of $4 million which was successfully achieved.  The program underpinned by Macquarie University and housed the grounds of the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence attracted philanthropic support from John Singleton and backing from Government.  Donors were offered the opportunity to give a child struggling to lean, a chance to turn their schooling around.

Like other capital campaign’s by Mark Quigley, The Exodus Foundation won industry recognition from FIA and F&P Magazine.
