We give students opportunities that change their lives
We work with donors and schools to give students in need the opportunities that make a real difference to their education and their lives.
Until now, many schools have found it difficult to build partnerships and attract donations from their communities and beyond. Schools Plus has been established to make it easy for schools and their supporters.
We connect donors who know the value of a great education with schools in need, to support projects that improve their students’ outcomes. By donating through Schools Plus, donors help thousands of students reach their potential. Explore our Give to Schools page to learn more, or donate now.
We support schools to raise funds in their community through a variety of ways including crowdfunding and Smart Giving. We also increase the connections with schools and donors. Explore our For Schools page to find out the best way Schools Plus can help your school.
Schools Plus began fundraising to support students facing disadvantage in April 2015, after tax legislation passed by Federal Parliament confirmed our Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR1) status.
