Want to support our mission? Make a one off or recurring monthly donation via our secure donation page


We're 100% volunteer run, which means that every donation to our scholarship fund really does makes a difference. How much and how often you may like to give is completely up to you: some donors give a one-off lump sum, and others choose to make a recurring monthly donation. Every dollar will help us to support a scholar from a refugee or humanitarian background (and all donations over A$2.00 are tax-deductible).

We currently take donations using Paypal, which will issue you an invoice once your donation is finalised. Please get in touch with us at info@johnmacfoundation.org if you require an invoice payable prior to donating or if you would like to discuss an alternative method of donating.

It's not just about the money - there are many other ways you can support our work. We are immensely grateful to a number of individuals and organisations for their generosity in donating skilled volunteers, in-kind services, pro bono support and opportunities for our students:

- Gilbert + Tobin

- Carlyle Kingswood Global

From providing venues and catering for our events, offering mentoring opportunities, workshops and internships for our scholarship recipients and alumni, or helping to fundraise on our behalf, there are many ways to assist us in our mission to help students from refugee and humanitarian backgrounds to achieve their full potential.
