Change lives and end disadvantage by giving the gift of a great education
Through Schools Plus, giving to schools is simple, effective and tax-deductible.
We understand the needs of donors, schools and most importantly, students facing disadvantage.
You can nominate a school of your choice or support a school recommended by Schools Plus as part of our Smart Giving Showcase. We use research to target funding to projects with the highest potential, making sure your donation is invested wisely.
Smart Giving Program
Schools Plus takes the guesswork out of giving to schools through its Smart Giving program, where you can donate to projects chosen by our assessment panel. Our Smart Giving Showcase profiles a range of school initiatives that will boost student engagement, improve the quality of teaching, increase the involvement of families in schools or introduce innovative ways to teach science, technology and maths subjects. Donors can choose a project to support by making an online donation.
School of your choice
You can also contact us if you would like to nominate a specific school or discuss a tailored donation.
Please note: Schools must have a value below 1000 on the Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) to be supported via Schools Plus. You can check a school’s ICSEA value on the My School website.
Now your donation is tax-deductible
Until now, many schools have been limited in their ability to attract funding. Barriers have included schools’ lack of deductible gift recipient (DGR) status and limited fundraising resources and know-how.
Federal Parliament recently passed legislation granting Schools Plus unique DGR status, making donations $2 and over to schools via Schools Plus tax-deductible.
