The mission of the ACER Foundation is to work in collaboration with external partners to initiate, establish and manage projects that address the needs of educationally disadvantaged groups in the community. The Foundation’s projects may be funded by corporate, government or philanthropic bodies, or by ACER itself.
The Foundation provides a free objective advisory service to assist donors, Foundations and professional advisors interested in supporting education. The ACER Foundation will introduce you to projects that offer innovative solutions and have been identified and initiated following extensive research.
Support a specific project addressing educational disadvantage
You can create a scholarship or award in your name or in the name of a loved one. Your generous donation can provide opportunities for disadvantaged students by paying school fees or by providing supplementary financial support to help a student to continue on at school.
Established as part of a national and international research organisation, the Foundation for Educational Research can draw on the unique research capabilities of ACER and develop solutions to address educational disadvantage in the community.
By making a bequest to the ACER Foundation you can leave a legacy for future generations. Bequests can fund scholarships, support research to address educational disadvantage or be directed to specific projects or solutions.
ACER research identifies innovative, breakthrough strategies to address specific educational needs. We are keen to identify corporate partners to work with us in developing and implementing these strategies.
