Community is important to us and we want to play our part.
The Dunnet Foundation is a philanthropic foundation established in 2019 with the aim of making positive financial and social changes for less fortunate members of our community.
As a non-profit organisation our mission is to provide support for young men and women struggling to overcome hardship, and a vehicle to empower aspiring young students who wish to achieve their dreams in order to become better people and future leaders.
We want the Foundation to be a vehicle to lift vulnerable people out of poverty and to create vital, healthy and happy lives for those who show potential and are determined to help themselves.
The Foundation aims to help across the community by directing support primarily into a number of key areas including, but not limited to the following:
- Talented young men and women who wish to pursue higher education without financial burden;
- Helping single mothers to provide for their children;
- Provide funding for community based sustainability projects; and
- Establish community based grants to assist young men and women battling poverty, addiction and homelessness.
To date our program has formed collaborations with not for profit organisations that provide education to empower disadvantaged young people to help them realise their potential and give back to the community.
Schools Plus is a national charity that helps children facing disadvantage succeed at school. With funding, coaching and resources, we empower schools in disadvantaged communities to create lasting change so their students can reach their full potential.
In the five years to mid-2020, more than 233,000 young people benefited from donations made to schools via Schools Plus. Our donors support projects that make the greatest difference to students’ lives, including in the areas of learning engagement, wellbeing and effective teaching.
The Foundation is providing funds for a scholarship for a female student at Doonside High School for 2021. The Harding Miller Education Foundation is an Australian charity that supports high potential but socio-economically disadvantaged girls across Australia through a scholarship over 4 years of high school. Our program gives these girls the tools and resources they need to not only complete high school but to reach their potential and build direct pathways to tertiary education.
