Welcome to the Farrer School Foundation Inc.

About the Farrer Foundation

Farrer is Australia’s only selective boarding Agricultural High School for boys many of whom hail from remote, regional, and rural areas. The necessity for these students to board significantly increases the financial strain on their families—a burden further compounded by recent adversities such as droughts and bushfires. In response, we established the Foundation’s Scholarship Fund, aiming to alleviate these financial hurdles and ensure every boy has access to the education he deserves.

Sponsor a Farrer Boarding Student - Leave a Lasting Legacy

Join us in a special opportunity to support a Farrer boarder through sponsorship. Whether covering the full extent or a portion of their educational and boarding fees, your sponsorship can transform a young man's life. It's more than financial aid; it's about leaving a meaningful and lasting imprint on our community and the lives of these promising students.

Boarding Student Scholarship Options:

  •          Full Duration Sponsorship: Support a student throughout their entire educational journey.
  •          Partial Duration Sponsorship: Contribute to a part of a student's high school education.
  •          One-off Donations (via the Farrer School Scholarship DGR fund): Every contribution, regardless of size, makes a difference.
  •          Anonymous Sponsorship: We respect the wishes of donors who prefer to keep their generosity private.


Confidence, Character, and Community

Your support goes beyond financial assistance; it becomes a lifeline for these students, shaping their futures and embedding the core Farrer values of Confidence, Character, and Community into their growth. Through your support, we cultivate young men of integrity, compassion, and resilience -attributes that empower them to contribute positively to their communities.

Rest assured; every single dollar donated to the Farrer Foundation is directly invested in our students’ futures. Operational fundraising endeavours fully cover our administrative and marketing expenses.

Farrer School Scholarship Fund

Making a tax-deductible donation to the Farrer School Scholarship Fund, a registered Deductible Gift Recipient fund, can help Farrer turn young boys into men. Although Farrer is a very cost-effective boarding school, some families struggle with the additional cost. This fund allows people to contribute towards supporting students with donations of any amount, which are pooled in this fund and offered throughout regional and remote areas of NSW.


Farrer School Building Fund

Our goal is to enhance the educational environment for all Farrer students, both day boys and boarders. The quality of Farrer's facilities is paramount, necessitating ongoing investment to maintain and improve these resources for our boys' benefit. Your support in any form is invaluable to us. For ways to contribute read here.

Make a Difference

Your generosity is not just an investment in the facilities and educational programs at Farrer but a contribution towards shaping the future of our students. Every donation, big or small, plays a crucial role in our mission.

Please note, the Farrer School Building Fund is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient Fund, making all donations  tax-deductible.

Together, let's build a brighter future for the Farrer boys.
