Schools Plus is a charity set up in 2013 to deliver philanthropic support to schools in disadvantaged communities. It works with donors and schools to give students in need the opportunities that make a real difference to their education and their lives.
Its latest initiative, called the Pioneers in Philanthropy, is a collaboration between some of Australia’s most respected business leaders who have come together to support disadvantaged schools and the teachers who work in them. The Pioneers, chaired by David Gonski AC, will donate more than $5 million through Schools Plus over the next five years.
Thomson Geer, led by Senior Associate, Ebru Davidson, is proud to be the pro bono legal partner of Schools Plus, supporting this and other initiatives that provide hundreds of schools across Australia with additional funding, with the ultimate goal of giving all Australian children access to a good education.
