The festival is funded through ticketing, sponsorship, and run mainly by volunteers.  The Sydney Caribbean Festival is the brain child of Hope Kidd, Managing Director of Jamaican Products the main organising and sponsorship body.  Jamaican born, Hope spent 3 years at St. Augustine, in Trinidad & Tobago, becoming the first female engineering graduate from The University of the West Indies.  Apart from believing in the importance of bringing together the community, Hope always earmarks a percentage of the money raised to support a local charity.  The type of charity identified this year for support is likely to be Domestic Violence.
