68 CHANCES Scholarships - More than ever before!

In 2013, we were delighted to provide 68 CHANCES scholarships to secondary and tertiary students for their studies in 2014. These are students who are showing brilliant potential but who can do with a financial hand up to enable them to participate fully in their education. We have been so pleased to hear from a number of students about how valuable the Foundation's Scholarship has been in supporting them. 

KINDER+ - our 'quiet achiever' program

Foundation Boroondara has provided subsidies to families who would otherwise have struggled to keep their children in a 4 year-old kindergarten program. I call this a quiet achiever program because families. are not identified in any way except by the Kindergarten Enrolment Officer / Treasurer. However, we often hear from the recipients about the way our support has lifted a burden from the shoulders of families who want their children to have the same opportunities for a great start in their formal education as everyone else.

Our help is needed in Boroondara

People are often astonished that there are so many families and individuals living in Boroondara who really need financial support towards their education of the type the Foundation offers. Boroondara is regarded as a wealthy suburb but many people within our municipality are 'doing it hard' for many different reasons. Our eligibility criteria require provision of a Centrelink Benefit or some similar proof which is always checked before your donated funds are provided!!
