Sponsorship through The Smith Family is a unique opportunity to create a better future for a young Australian and their family. Your sponsorship directly benefits your student by assisting with the purchase of essential school items for your student, and contributing to our Learning for Life Workers who provide support and connect disadvantaged students and their families with learning opportunities in their local community. You’ll have the opportunity to build a relationship with your student through written communication, receive updates on their progress and encourage them to stay motivated at school just through the knowledge that someone whom they’ve never met cares enough to invest in their future.

Workplace giving or payroll giving enables you to make regular contributions from your pay to The Smith Family, either in the form of sponsorship or a donation. Pre-tax giving results in an immediate tax deduction, without the need to get receipts and claim with your annual tax return.
