Become a regular giver today!

We believe in equal education opportunities for everyone, regardless of where they live or the colour of their skin. We need your help to offer children in remote Indigenous communities equity of opportunity in closing the literacy gap.

Why become a regular giver?

When you join our monthly giving program, you are choosing Equity of Opportunity for remote Indigenous communities. Our programs aren’t possible without a regular sustainable income to let us plan and deliver effective solutions; we need your regular support. $30 buys three books to go to a child in a remote community.

How your ongoing donations help

Check out our program page for more information, and read some of the insightful stories on our blog.

Join us today in making a difference to the lives of children living in remote communities across Australia. Begin your regular giving today!

Workplace giving

Workplace giving is a simple, convenient and effective way to make regular donations to our Foundation from your pre-tax salary, which reduces the amount of income tax deducted from your pay. You will receive the tax benefit straight away rather than having to wait until the end of the financial year.

Why workplace giving?
Regular giving is one of the most effective ways for us to provide continuous support in remote communities. A steady and reliable source of income will ensure that we can plan ahead and invest in long-term solutions in order to help close the literacy gap.

Benefits of workplace giving
  • You don’t need to collect donation receipts. Donations are recorded on your payslip and your total donation amount will be included in your annual PAYG payment summary.
  • Workplace giving is organised through your payroll office so you don’t have to worry about any administration.
  • Your donation is pre-tax so it will actually cost you less than the amount we will receive from your payroll office - see below.
  • If your employer has a matched giving program, your workplace giving donation could be doubled!

Get in contact with us if you are interested in workplace giving or would like more information. 

Hold a Great Book Swap

The Great Book Swap is a fantastic way to celebrate reading locally, and raise funds for remote communities. The idea is to swap a favourite book in exchange for another, for a gold coin or note donation. Register your school or workplace. More information about the Great Book Swap.
