At the beginning of each year the Buderim Foundation distributes vouchers to families in the community.
These “Back to School” vouchers are provided by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and, as the money comes from FRRR to the Foundation and is then distributed, it is known as flow-through funding.
The Foundation has distributed $143,950 worth of $50 vouchers over the past 14 years.
The Foundation is assisted in the distribution of the vouchers by Buderim Mountain State School, Mountain Creek Primary School, Chancellor State College, St Vincent de Paul, Sunny Kids, Children in Grandparent Care and the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Program is supported by FRRR, Origin Foundation, R.E. Ross Trust, The William Buckland Foundation, The Menzies Foundation, The Julian Flett Endowment, Target, Australian Communities Foundation, the Rotary Club of Buderim and the Buderim Lions Club.
Rebecca Ramsay of Clear Light Capital is the Chair of the Buderim Foundation’s Grants Committee.
