Important 2021 Update

Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic created many challenges, your support helped us provide much-needed food parcels and medication to the students and their families from The School of Life.

This pandemic has resulted in a lot of uncertainty, especially in finding the best way for SCOOP to support those in the greatest need.  As a result of recent events, we have temporarily placed all our fundraising events and works on hold, including new memberships to the SCOOP Crew program.

All the remaining funds available at SCOOP will be held securely in our bank account while we work with our global partners in building a new program in line with our mission.  Over the coming months, the SCOOP Board will use this time to reflect on global challenges and develop a new strategy, together with global partners, to meet our mission.

SCOOP Foundation is a Perth based not-for-profit organisation impacting on global education inequality and poverty

Our mission is to create inspiring connections between sponsors and non-profit educational centres’ improving educational outcomes for marginalised children

We do this by supporting non-governmental organisations (NGOs) who work directly with children, families and communities living in extreme poverty.  We support NGOs who share the same vision; A world where everyone has access to the education they need to unlock their full potential.

SCOOP is an Australian charity with a global heart. We are the little sister to The SCOOP Foundation in Dublin, Ireland. SCOOP Australia inspires connections between Australians and marginalised children in the global community.

Since establishing in 2014 SCOOP has contributed over $40,000 for marginalised children living in poverty around the world. SCOOP is governed by a diverse, passionate and highly skilled Board and is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission.
