In 2020 a BFF gift helped establish the Monash Achieving Potential Perpetual Fund and the Bowness Family Foundation Achieving Potential Scholarship.     This endowment fund enables the University to pool donated funds supporting access to education and will give academically bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to reach their full potential for    decades to come.

Supporting Communication in Early Years
The No Limits program run by the Mornington Peninsula Foundation provides speech diagnostics and speech and language therapy support to school children from disadvantaged kinders and primary schools in the Mornington Peninsula. Our support ensures that young children in this area have access to services and with this the chance to flourish.

The Award winning Education Pathways Program (EPP) run by Launch Housing aims to reduce the number of primary school children who miss school as a result of experiencing homelessness. EPP identifies and assists children with educational learning gaps, linking them to schools and providing supports like speech pathology services for young children as is needed.
