Supporting you, so you can support your students
Schools Plus is changing the face of giving in schools to benefit you, your students and your community.
We bring together donors and schools where the student need is greatest. The goal is to provide vital resources that ensure your students are engaged learners, your teachers are highly-skilled and your community, especially parents, are involved in school activities.
There are many ways we can help your school raise much-needed funding for activities and equipment.

Smart Giving: where we match your project with donors
Through our Smart Giving program, we help connect schools with individuals, businesses and foundations who are passionate about education.
We draw on advice from independent experts to select projects that will make a difference, then promote them to potential donors who wants to know where they can have the greatest impact. Find out more.
Fundraise Yourself: crowdfunding in your community
Through our Fundraise Yourself approach, schools that want to do their own fundraising can register their project to be profiled on our Projects page.
The schools then promote the project to their community – including families and friends, local businesses and clubs. All donations are tax-deductible.
Find out more about this easy way to raise funds.
Donors' Choice: your donor nominates your school
Donors can also nominate your school to receive their donations. Alternatively, if you have a willing or existing donor, please contact us so we can help you register your project. Or your donor can complete this online form.
Fair Education: NSW based program
Our Fair Education Program is for NSW schools only. Supported by the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation, this program aims to develop the capacity of school leadership in NSW disadvantaged schools to engage families and communities in student learning.
Applications open March 2017. Find out more.
Which schools are eligible?
We support schools with an ICSEA value below 1000 (including many special schools with a zero ICSEA). ICSEA stands for Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage – check values at www.myschool.edu.au.
More than 4,600 schools in Australia, across the government, independent and Catholic sectors, are eligible for our support.
