2024 Back to School recipients

Media releases (soft launch): 31 January 2024

To help students heading back to school in 2024, FRRR, with support from a variety of generous donors, has issued more than $1,097,900 in $50 and $100 eGift Back to School (BTS) vouchers. These vouchers will be distributed through 48 community partners, reaching into at least 134 remote, rural and regional communities to assist more than 18,400 students and their families experiencing financial distress.

This is the final open round of the BTS program. FRRR is extremely grateful to the many organisations that have funded this program since it began in 2005. FRRR also would like to thank the organisations and Community Foundations that have partnered with FRRR and helped to distribute thousands of vouchers to families over the years.
