Crown Resorts Foundation's Programs and Initiatives

The Crown Resorts Foundation is committed to creating and supporting opportunities across the community that inspire positive change. We will work with our partners to create opportunities to contribute meaningfully to disadvantaged communities, promote programs that improve the exposure and accessibility of the arts, and create opportunities and provide support for Indigenous youth.

Crown Resorts Foundation Funded Programs

  • The Salvation Army 'Night Watch' program:

    Through its partnership agreement with The Salvation Army, the Crown Resorts Foundation has provided funding for the 'Night Watch' program. This program is an extension of The Salvation Army Melbourne’s successful 'Street Teams' program.

    The funding provided by the Crown Resorts Foundation for ‘Night Watch’ will allow two qualified and experienced workers, along with a team of trained volunteers, to provide a quick call out service for a range of enquiries such as a response to people experiencing drug and or alcohol intoxication, underage people needing support, separation from friends, homelessness or emotional distress.
