Who are the Shoalhaven Education Fund? [SEF]

Formed around 8 years ago by a small group of people, SEF was formed to give opportunity and resources to young Shoalhaven people who needed a hand to move from school to either study, train or get a job.

SEF became part of the Country Education Fund - a registered charity - more information below.

Why is this year so important?

Due to the fires and then the coronavirus - our young people have been impacted.

There has been loss, little part-time work, and the disruption throughout this year.

In addition - the hard-working team of SEF Committee has been unable to get out and raise funds.

spba and SEF

spba members have supported SEF each year since 2014.

The strong ties with supporting young Shoalhaven people into future study and work is part of the mission for spba - to Develop, Retain and Attract Professionals to the Shoalhaven.

Shoalhaven Education Fund – background

The Shoalhaven Education Fund (SEF) was established to provide much needed financial assistance and support to local youth to help them achieve their post-high school education, training and vocation aspirations. We recognise that the cost of regional students pursuing their post-high school goals is often much greater than those of their metropolitan counterparts and that sometimes these costs can be prohibitive.

With this in mind, the SEF fundraises throughout the year and accepts donations from local residents and businesses in order to provide financial grants to students who need an extra helping hand. The funds come directly from your local community – none of it is government-funded – celebrating the aspirations of local youth and working to help them achieve these aspirations. It’s our way of saying “we believe in you and want to support your goals”.
