Give a kid a chance - AUD $20

The Fr Bob Maguire Foundation

Give a kid a chance

The Father Bob Foundation provides scholarships from Year 7 to Year 12 to enable kids to receive a first-class education.

Your $20 donation will help us get kids off the street and onto a fair start to life.

A major part of Father Bob's philosophy from the beginning of his community services work of more than four decades, has been to educate young people.

Education is key to young people rising out of the poverty cycle. Our Education Fund is providing a full education experience for kids from financially-challenged homes in the City of Port Phillip. Without our support, these kids would have fallen through the cracks, through no fault of their own.

 Along with the material aid, we provide mentoring and tutoring in a quiet, friendly and peaceful environment. Some parents don't have the skills to help children with their studies and the home environment is not always conducive to study. 

 Unfortunately, there are many more that need our help.

We believe that each kid has their own special talent and is a potential innovator, inventor and asset to their own and the wider community. If we’re not careful they will be lost to society, and we will be the poorer for it.

Every dollar you give towards our Education Fund will give a kid the opportunity to flourish and make a productive and positive contributions to our society. They can become role models for the next generation. An education is every child’s birth-right and a societal responsibility..
