For over ten years, the Podmore Foundation has provided educational scholarships and financial assistance to Indigenous students from disadvantaged backgrounds to support the spirit of Returning Opportunity. To achieve this objective, the Podmore Foundation has partnered with several leading education institutions in Canberra and Sydney, including Canberra Grammar School (CGS) to provide access to high quality education and develop scholarship recipients’ leadership potential outside the classroom.
As a result of shared values, common interests and synergies between the two organisations, the Podmore Foundation and the CGS Foundation have agreed to establish the Podmore Trust within the CGS Foundation to enable funding support continued support for disadvantaged individuals with an Indigenous background within the Anglican Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn. This new structure will see all funds raised by the Podmore Foundation, and all current and future Podmore scholarships transferred to the CGS Foundation for administration by the CGS Foundation’s Board, followed by the formal closure of the Podmore Foundation.
The Podmore Foundation welcomes the opportunity to continue supporting the CGS Foundation and the Podmore Trust to further the aim of reconciliation through Returning Opportunity.
President, The Podmore Foundation
