Donations for Eyre Peninsula Back to School Vouchers will double their Value with Matched Funding opportunity. Donors can make a tax-deductible contribution to the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation (EPCF) until 29 September 2022, which will lock in matched funding for Back-To-School vouchers for 2023. All of the vouchers will be distributed to schools across the Eyre Peninsula.
Donors can request that their donation support a selected school or district on the Eyre Peninsula. The matched funding enables two $50 vouchers for every $50 contributed.
Chairman Garry Downey said, “This is an amazing opportunity for local donors to secure extraordinary value through their tax-deductible contribution, supporting children in need on their education pathway. This highly leveraged funding will go direct to Eyre Peninsula schools – no commissions, overheads or administrative costs. Every dollar will provide critical help and encouragement to school children who need it”.
“Every year, there is more need for vouchers than we can fulfill, so this matched funding opportunity is a chance to see your support truly making a difference to our region’s future”.
The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation has been delivering Back to School Vouchers in the region since 2009, supporting children and families in the early education phase. The vouchers are used for notebooks, pens and pencils, uniforms, shoes, underwear, bathers, lunch boxes and school bags, enabling these children to be prepared for learning alongside their peers.
Please contact the Foundation on 0400 685 520, or download the donation form from the website at www.epcf.com.au . Credit card and bank deposit facilities are available.
The Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation carefully manages a growing base of donated funds and works with philanthropic and other partners to ensure the best possible value and impact from each of its community projects, regional student advancement and home hospice services on Eyre Peninsula.
The Foundation is supported by the invaluable work of the Book Bazaar volunteers and committed administrative staff.
