Not at all. While we would love for you to join us, you don’t need to be a member to apply for funding.

Unfortunately, no. We want to benefit as many schools as possible and spread the funding around evenly. This means if your school is successful and receives funding through our School Impact Program, your school will need to wait another two calendar years before they can apply again. For example, if your school receives funding in February 2024, they will need to wait until February 2026 to apply for funding again.

Funding will be available in the following amounts:

  • $2000
  • $5000
  • $10,000
  • $20,000

Funding can only be provided for activities or projects that benefit students or provide support and wellbeing to both students and staff, such as:

  • Equipment or facility upgrades on campus
  • Student experiences such as school camps, excursions etc
  • Teacher wellbeing including training
  • Student support such as lunch programs or sporting programs.
