The Ballarat Foundation works in partnership with the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal (FRRR) to deliver Back to School vouchers to many families in the Ballarat community.
Back to School is a national program that helps remote and rural children and young people access quality educational experiences. Since 2005, this practical, positive program has helped thousands of students to engage in learning and strengthen their educational outcomes.
Working through local community organisations, Back to School provides $50 digital gift vouchers to students in need redeemable at Target, Kmart or local retailers.
The vouchers can be used for items such as school uniforms, clothing, shoes, school bags and stationery – or anything that helps students feel ready to learn. $50 vouchers delivered to support more than 340 children at Ballarat region schools every year.
