Our work in rural and regional Australia is made possible through the support of corporate, philanthropic, community and pro bono providers. By partnering with the CEF, you will help us to continue that work – supporting students, their families and their communities.

Philanthropic & Corporate Partnerships

We are seeking partners to help us expand and improve education and career opportunities for disadvantaged rural youth. Partnership opportunities can be focused on local, state or national level support.

We also need partners for CEF projects which support rural and regional school students, school leavers and our volunteers across Australia.

The Country Education Foundation’s work in rural and regional Australia is made possible by the generous support we receive from a number of corporate and philanthropic partners.

We welcome interest from potential new partners who:

  • share our values
  • are committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged young people and
  • would like to support communities in rural and regional Australia.

We welcome donations of office equipment, computers and technology support, travel/accommodation, fuel and a range of professional services.

Community Partnerships

CEF works collaboratively with a wide range of organisations and individuals who share our values and our commitment to improving the lives of young people in rural and regional Australia.

We do this by working on joint initiatives, sharing ideas with and promoting and assisting like-minded organisations wherever possible.
