Back in February, our CEO, Sarah Taylor, did a road trip with Origin Foundation representative, Tom Keenan, visiting the Shoalhaven, Yass, Cooma, Goulburn and Temora. It was a great opportunity to see the work of local CEFs and meet our fabulous volunteers and grant recipients.

Since 2011, the Origin Foundation has provided over $300,000 to the CEF for scholarships and other support for hundreds of rural and regional students.

Origin Foundation Head, Sean Barrett said,

“Our focus is on education [which is] the pathway to a brighter future for people and their communities. We are proud to support the CEF and foster the education and career achievements of rural Australian youth.”
