The extended CEF family

We are fortunate to have a great team of Australians who care deeply about education, young people and the future of rural and regional Australia. We are governed by an experienced and committed Board of Directors and a dedicated team of staff at our office in Orange, NSW.

Our Patron and Ambassador, The Hon Tim Fischer, AC former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, is a wonderful supporter and strong advocate for our work in rural and regional Australia.

 

“Good education provides not only individuals with keys for a positive future, individual meshing cogs to create real progress but also the seeds on which the fabric of the nation can build and progress. The Country Education Foundation is a great facilitator in this regard, a great overall cog in the machinery of the nation – it is deserving of wide support.”

Our volunteers across rural and regional Australia

Local CEFs are all run by our fabulous volunteers – teams of committed people representing a broad cross section of their communities. They include people prominent in education, business, agriculture, community and government.

CEF ignites awareness and passion for education in rural, regional and remote Australian communities – and our committees and local education foundations are made up of volunteers who share that passion and commitment.
