Investing in public education

To support the important role played by public education in ensuring fair, equitable and high-quality education for all, you can donate to the Public Education Foundation.  The Foundation is committed to building long-term partnerships with business and philanthropic organisations to achieve the best results for educational goals. We work with our partners to create a scholarship package for particular areas of disadvantage and/or help students pursue excellence in particular curriculum areas.

Donations can be made online via Give Now.  If you would like to make a donation via bank transfer, please email us for our bank details. Cheques can be posted to 105 Phillip Street, Parramatta NSW 2150.  All donations above $2 are tax deductible.

Your generosity will provide students with opportunities that make a real difference to their education and their lives.


The Public Education Foundation is grateful to our supporters and donors who are committed to help overcome disadvantage. They know that the most effective way of doing this is through education and capacity building in our public schools.
