Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation has begun distributing Back to School Vouchers around the Eyre Peninsula.

The total value for 2017 is $46,350.00.

The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation, in conjunction with the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR); Wyatt Trust since 2009 and the Morialta Trust since 2015 have assisted the Eyre Peninsula with Back to School Vouchers to date amounting to $143,750.00.

Each voucher is a Target Card for $50 which helps families in need to be able to purchase items for their school aged children to assist them starting the new school year.
Vouchers are commonly used by families to buy clothing, footwear, school bags, stationery items and other equipment for students’ use at school.

The need for this support across the Eyre Peninsula is strikingly high. In gathering data to assist the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation to achieve distribution, we found that there is a much greater need for this assistance than the support we could provide.

Without the support of School Principals and Governing Councils this distribution would not be possible.

People wishing to gain information about the Foundation and options for making donations can access information from the Foundation’s Website www.epcf.com.au
The Foundation can be contacted on 0400 685 520 or by email to admin@epcf.com.au

  1. Could I please have some more information regarding the back to school vouchers. Plaza Youth Centre has many disadvantaged young people, which most families can not afford the basics (warm clothes) to send their children to school.
    If Plaza could access the vouchers, it would help the families to be able to send their children to school.
