Make a difference through the ACER Foundation.

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. 

Education disadvantage

Support a specific project addressing educational disadvantage

Help purchase water tanks for Mollele Primary School in Lesotho, or support ACER to build new and exciting resources for teachers and children transitioning into school with Little J & Big Cuz, or support a research project in a specific area of education.

You tell us where you want your support to go. All donations are tax deductible. 


Establish a scholarship

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.


Support research

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.


Leave a gift in your will

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.


Corporate giving

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.
