Support our program

Program cost

The EDvance program is an initiative of the Fogarty Foundation. The program is also financially supported by the Western Australian Government through the Department of Education, and by Catholic Education Western Australia. By making a contribution, funders close the remaining gap and enable schools to access the program.

Make a difference

You can support the EDvance program by becoming a Major Funding Partner (previous major funders have given between $25,000-$200,000 p.a.); including Fogarty EDvance in your company gift-matching program or making a one-off end of financial year donation; or by joining an established Giving Circle or setting up your own Giving Circle (from as little as $500/year).

By becoming an EDvance funder, you will get the opportunity to gain insight into our program, see the program in action, join school leaders and mentors at workshops, and visit the EDvance schools.

If you’re interested in getting involved contact the team at Fogarty EDvance.
