Support disadvantaged young Victorians

You can help improve the lives of thousands of disadvantaged young Victorians through the Newsboys Foundation Trust.

Donating to Newsboys helps to support approximately 40 organisations each year that are making a meaningful difference in the lives of Victoria’s youth.

Newsboys grants reach every corner of Victoria, supporting programs that are targeted at regional, metro and statewide youth.  In particular, we focus on supporting young people from low socio-economic circumstances, young people in rural and regional Victoria, young Indigenous people, young refugees and asylum seekers and young people with disabilities.

Your donation will help support a wide range of projects and programs including academic pursuits, arts and cultural activities, sport and outdoor education and vocational/life skills. By supporting disadvantaged youth in each of these areas, you can help reconnect struggling young people in a positive way into their community, re-engage them in education and re-ignite their passion for learning.

Newsboys has been operating for over 125 years and has been a grant-making Foundation since 1973.  Since 1973 we have provided over $16M in grant funding to the best youth-focussed programs and projects in Victoria.  Donations to the Newsboys Foundation Trust are pooled with funds from Newsboys Foundation and other donors – allowing us all to have a greater impact on young people than any of us could have alone.  Each year Newsboys identifies the best programs and projects across Victoria, provides grants to support them and reports back to our donors on the impact of their donations.
