As a member of the Alumni, you know how the Governor’s Leadership Foundation (GLF) program can be a positive and transformational experience.
However, not everyone has the resources available to participate in GLF.
That’s why, in 2018, the GLF participants developed an inspiring idea. The cohort pooled their collective funds to pay for an individual to participate in the following year’s intake, someone who may otherwise not have been able to afford the experience.
During a recent GLF Connect event involving a series of pitches to create positive social impact, “Who’s with me?”, the concept of a scholarship fund was presented. The concept was received positively and supported by a broad range of Alumni members.
So, honouring the example set by our 2018 colleagues and other GLF cohorts since, the Leaders Institute has now established the GLF Connect Scholarship Fund.
This enduring fund has been created to raise enough money to sponsor at least one new participant in the GLF each year. If additional funds remain then this amount will be accumulated and used to pay for future scholarships or multiple scholarships in the same year.
Scholarship recipients must meet all application requirements for the GLF Program. Suitable scholarship recipient candidates will be selected and then approved by the elected GLF Alumni representatives on the Leaders Institute of SA Board.
The scholarship fundraising progress and the successful scholarship recipient will be announced via the GLF Connect website page and social media. This means that Alumni members will see the impact of your support.
Formal financial and impact reports on the GLF Connect Scholarship Fund will be made available to all GLF Alumni members via the Leaders Institute’s Annual General Meeting.
All members of GLF Alumni are invited to contribute and, thanks to the Leaders Institute of South Australia acquiring Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, all donations over $2 will be tax deductible.
The GLF Connect Scholarship Fund is an opportunity for past GLF participants to leave a legacy by enabling others to participate – it’s our way of paying it forward.
Alternatively, you can donate to us via our Beyond Bank accounts
