The Denmark Youth Training Fund

Your gift can support a young person in our community to overcome financial barriers and further themselves.

You can now contribute to Denmark’s first ever training fund and assist those aged 17-25 to overcome financial barriers to access training and further education.

Scholarships

One-off or recurring tax-deductible donations from the community combine to produce a number of $1,000 scholarships every year for young people in our community to pursue further study or training. If you’d like to establish a scholarship in your own name or that of a loved one, please contact us.

Fund Training for Locals

Sometimes it takes the kindness of a local to help a young person on their way to a productive career. Your contribution will help young people, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it, get a relevant qualification to improve their work prospects.

What the scholarships used for?

Educational purposes as defined by ACNC as a ‘Charitable Purpose’ and may include using it for textbooks, offset costs to relocate for university, put toward course fees, essential tools/equipment for an apprenticeship etc. 

What sort of qualifications are covered in the Training Fund?

Courses currently eligible to be funded include:

  • Construction White Card
  • Barista Course
  • Senior First Aid Certificate
  • Responsible Service of Alcohol
  • Forklift Ticket 

If you feel strongly about a course you’d like to sponsor that’s not listed here, please contact us.

What's a useful amount to contribute?

The short answer to this is: anything!

We encourage community groups or groups of friends to consider creating their own ‘giving circle’ whereby having everyone contribute what they can afford makes the total amount have a great impact! 

Can I cancel or change a recurring donation?

Absolutely. We understand circumstances may change and there is no long term commitment on your part.

You are 100% free to change anything you like, any time at all.

Simply contact us with what you’d like to do (e.g. cancel the the recurring donation, change the amount or change which fund it points to) and we’ll do the rest.
