For Schools


Supporting you, so you can support your students

Schools Plus has changed 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.

Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive further information and updates.

Our programs

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.

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, QLD & VIC based program

Our Fair Education Program is for NSW, QLD and VIC schools only. This program aims to develop the capacity of school leadership in NSW, QLD and VIC disadvantaged schools to engage families and communities in student learning.

Alumni Program: connecting past students with schools

Our alumni program supports schools-in-need to identify, connect, engage with and fundraise from their past students (alumni).

We believe alumni have the capacity to inspire current and future students and staff and can provide much needed funds and other philanthropic support to disadvantaged schools.

Find out more about how to connect with your past students.
