Background to the Foundation
The Association of Graduates in Early Childhood Studies has always had a philanthropic focus. In earlier times it established holiday homes for children from inner city suburbs at Forest Hill and Ringwood. When times changed and government took over providing these kinds of services, the large tracts of land, on which these holiday homes stood, were sold. With the proceeds the Association established a philanthropic trust that distributes funds to projects associated with early childhood education and care.

The Association of Graduates in Early Childhood Studies entrusts the management of The Foundation to a Board of Trustees working under a charter to guide their deliberations. The Foundation distributes money through the Forest Hill Fund and the Warrawong Fund. The Charitable Trust has a separate website. For details of past and upcoming grants, see links below.
