Donate today and change a child's future.

Did you know that in disadvantaged communities, up to one in three children start school behind?

Without targeted, quality intervention programs, most of these children will struggle and fall further behind each year, severely limiting their chances in school and in life.


Every dollar you donate will give vulnerable children the chance to learn, dream and reach their full potential through education.

I'd like to add a little extra to help cover fees.

You can give vulnerable children the gift of a brighter future by donating today.

The difference you make

With your support, we can provide at-risk children and schools with quality learning programs that have proven to work.

From hands-on literacy and numeracy support, quality STEM learning equipment and training, to programs that inspire confidence and a love of learning, your help will give children a pathway to overcome disadvantage and reach their full potential.

Urgent Need

Around the country, children urgently need your help to access quality education programs now more than ever.

COVID-19 has changed children’s relationships, experiences, and development. Those already facing disadvantage have seen their lives become even more challenging, as their households are too often the first and hardest hit by economic fallout.

What’s more, the number of children experiencing disadvantage has more than doubled due to various factors, including inflation and the cost of living crisis.  

Following years of extreme hardship and disruption, those who were already vulnerable are finding it even harder to keep up with their more advantaged peers. And the reality is that without targeted intervention, most will continue to fall behind, severely limiting their learning outcomes and life opportunities.

Ardoch is committed to doing all we possibly can to make sure no one misses out. But we need your help. Please will you join us in giving every child the quality education they deserve?
