As a community-based organisation, CEF believes that support offered to students from the people in their towns and regions is one of the best possible ‘lifts’ they can have as they work toward their goals.
How do we know this? 🤔
Because they tell us so.
CEF Coleambally-Darlington Point is an example of one of our passionate, active and committed local foundations. The community partnership they have formed with Coleambally Irrigation Cooperative Ltd (CICL) to provide a local scholarship that not only provides students with financial support but also social support, work experience and employment opportunities.
But don't just take our word for it - let George Payne the inaugural recipient of the CICL Grant Latta Bonded Scholarship tell you! 😜👍
Did you know this week is National Student Volunteer Week? 🤷♂️
Passion. Opportunity. Change. This theme explores how students can realise their dreams and effect change across the world....
With this is mind, there really was no better time to introduce you to our CEF 'Aspirational Influencers,' past and present CEF grant and scholarship recipients as passionate about our cause and work they volunteer their time for us.
They attend community events, provide mentoring and create audiovisual content to inform and inspire the next generation rural and regional students about post-school education.👏🤩
We cannot thank these students and the many others that volunteer to take part in our work enough - they truly make a difference. 💙💛
The McLean Foundation, Eureka Benevolent Foundation and The Zagora Family Foundation continue to provide life changing scholarships to students from Broken Hill determined to attend university after school. 🎓💸

On the back of our profile of the inspiring Millie George earlier this week, we now announce our Findex Community Find scholars for 2022! 💲🤩
Since 2017, Findex Community Fund has donated more than $128,000 to CEF. We are thrilled to say this partnership will continue for next year, and are so grateful for their ongoing commitment to supporting the education of our regional youth.
"If something falls in your inbox or a phone call, or a mutual friend of a friend has an opportunity that you like the sound of, take part in it and don’t sit on the sideline!" 🤩🙌
This is one of the valuable lessons Millie George from Nyngan NSW has learned, and one all of us can be reminded of every now and again, no matter what age we are. A self-confessed 'homebody,' this is something she has had to work hard at, and it is now paying off big time.
Having finished a Bachelor of Business at @uninewengland with support from CEF Nyngan and a Findex Community Fund - CEF scholarship, Millie is now working full time for @AuctionsPlus in Sydney. She loves chatting with people everyday and working for a company that enables her to stay connected to the land and her home.
Bright, dedicated and incredibly thoughtful, Millie is proud of her journey so far and hopes sharing her story will inspire others to make the most of the opportunities presented to them, no matter how difficult it might seem at first! 😉👏
We are so proud to bring you our 2021 Annual Review. As we go through the process of creating this document each year, we continue to be blown away by the incredible results we are able achieve because YOU support and believe in us. Thank you. 🤩🙌

This document without question shows that education changes lives. And families. And communities.💙💛
