No child wants to turn up to school on the first day of the year without their stationery and books. Sadly, this is a reality in many of our schools across Australia. In 2020, 774,000 children under the age of 15 (17.7% of all children in Australia) lived below the poverty line. This means that more than 1 in 6 children live below the poverty line in Australia.

This is why we need your support. You can become involved with Stationery Aid by:
Helping to fund Stationery Aid
By donating regular or one-off funds, you are helping purchase resources we are in short supply of for our student stationery and booklist lists. You are also helping to support Stationery Aid directly to continue our mission and grow.
Without the support of individuals, corporations, and government, we cannot achieve our social and environmental purpose.
Are you a corporation wanting to create positive change by acknowledging the need to address social and environmental responsibilities within your community and beyond? Please contact us to become a corporate sponsor.

We have collection boxes that can be sent around the country and returned to us once full.
