A community partnership brought to you by OfficeMax® Australia and OfficeMax® New Zealand in conjunction with child welfare charity Barnardos Australia.
Education is one of the most important parts of a child’s development, but unfortunately some families struggle to equip their children with the resources required for their schooling.
Max e Grants is a small grants program that enables education providers to nominate children for assistance. Often it just takes something small to help them on their way, such as assistance with school books and stationery, uniforms and equipment, special tuition or support with excursions.
Max e Grants has been successfully operating in Australia for more than four years and has given out AUD$600,000 in grants to more than 1000 Australian children. From 2011, OfficeMax® New Zealand joined this program to launch the same initiative for children in New Zealand.
Together we can give children in need a better chance at life through increased participation in the education system.
