Annual Giving Day – Community Fundraising Success!

On Thursday 9 June at 9.00am, we commenced our 24-hour Annual Giving Day campaign seeking our community’s support to Give the Gift of An Education for Life by raising funds for our Foundation’s Indigenous, Global Citizen (refugee) and Leonardian (socially disadvantaged) scholarships.

Every one dollar that was donated was doubled thanks to our passionate community members who matched contributions dollar for dollar until we reached our fundraising goal of $200,000.

Effective 2.00pm today, Friday 10 June, we have raised over $203,000!

Congratulations to  McMeekin House on being the highest fundraising team, with a total of $42,654 as at 10 June, 2022.
