Each year a donation is made to CAFS (Child and Family Services Ballarat) through a Ballarat Foundation sub-fund set up by Val Sarah, AM DSJ. Funds were used in early 2017 to take the Children and Families in the Foster Care program to Donegan's Farm for a morning trip.


Back to School

posted by Pam McKee, 30 Jan 2017

Not every child in Ballarat will return to school this week with the essentials. Many don’t have or have outgrown their shoes or basic uniform items. Your donation of $50 will give a struggling family the means to buy shoes or clothing that fit and are in good repair and will send a child to school confident and ready to learn.
