Ways to help
CEF relies on donations and the generosity of individuals and like-minded corporations. We do not receive any government funding and can proudly claim that we are run by a committed group of family, friends and community.
Give a gift
By donating to CEF you are helping country kids who are isolated from the same level of opportunities as city students. Your gift will go toward text books, accommodation costs, travel costs and other costs associated with living out of home. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, CEF will provide you with a receipt of your donation.
By giving regularly you are helping CEF to remain a stable influence in country kids’ lives. We rely on your generosity, along with education and corporate partnerships, to give country youth the education and training opportunities they deserve.
