How to Help?

It doesn’t matter what line of work you are in, if you would like to do something to help underprivileged Victorian kids, talk to us. Let’s share resources, talents and knowledge in ways that can benefit both your business and the community.

Regular giving provides important income that supports our ability to respond to immediate requests for assistance.

Every donation helps.

State Schools’ Relief is different because:

Every Dollar Helps

Every dollar donated goes directly to Victorian state school students

Unique Service

No other Australian state or territory has a similar organisation

Exclusively For VIC Govt Schools

The only criterion is that the child is enrolled at a Victorian Government school. Every circumstance is different – there are a variety of situations where the child may need support such as poverty, neglect, homelessness, financial hardship, family violence, illness and the devastating effects of house fires and natural disasters

Help Through Resources

State Schools' Relief doesn't provide funds to families/carers – instead we provide practical, tangible assistance directly to the student through brand new school uniform items, footwear, socks, underwear and a host of other essential educational resources, free of charge or by authorisation to purchase from their school shop or supplier on a co-payment basis

New Opportunities

We are always looking for new ideas and businesses we could partner with to provide more Victorian students with the opportunities to succeed in education

Regular Donations Help

A regular donation to State Schools’ Relief could mean the difference between a child who becomes withdrawn and a child with the confidence to get through the school day. We have an automated giving platform via Keela where you can set up weekly, monthly, annual or one-off payments by credit card or direct debit.

Alternatively, you can transfer funds directly into our account via EFT.

Why donate to State Schools’ Relief?

State Schools’ Relief has many generous supporters who kindly make tax deductible donations through their departmental payroll each week, fortnight or month.

One of our donors explained why:

“Every time I see the look of relief on a parents face when we suggest sourcing uniforms from State Schools’ Relief – and then the look of joy on the children’s faces when the parcel arrives – I know that supporting this cause directly improves children’s lives. It’s done quietly, with no fuss and it allows the children to feel part of the school without standing out due to their family circumstances” – staff member, Dandenong Primary School


What’s the process?

It's so simple. Join our Payroll Giving Program by filling out the Payroll Giving form and submit it to your Business Manager for processing.

Alternatively, why not arrange a morning tea at your school to find out more?  We'll supply the donuts, you supply the staff!

Please contact us on  03 8769 8400 or via email to book in a date for your morning tea.

All Money Goes To The Kids

Every dollar you donate goes directly to kids in need. The tax benefit is immediate: if you donate $20.00, only around $13.00 will be deducted from your take home pay.

Easy And Tax Effective

Workplace Giving is a simple and tax effective way for employees to regularly donate, enabling State Schools’ Relief to provide uniforms and shoes to Victorian kids in need.
