Domino’s Dubbo supports Harding Miller Education Foundation

Domino’s registered charity Give for Good and the local Domino’s Dubbo store are supporting the Harding Miller Education Foundation with a $5,000 grant to provide a scholarship for a disadvantaged year 12 student, as part of the Give for Good Franchisee Grants Program.

The foundation’s scholarship program provides tools and support to disadvantaged girls with high potential to boost their career aspirations and educational achievements.

Domino’s Dubbo franchisee Josh Arnold said the grant would be used to provide tutoring, books, stationery, uniforms, online homework assistance, high speed internet connection and help desk support.

“We are really proud to get behind the Harding Miller Education Foundation and support a year 12 student to complete their high school studies and reach their full potential,” Josh said.  

“The grant has been provided by Domino’s registered charity, Give for Good, which supports education and youth initiatives, leadership and entrepreneurship, rural communities and disaster relief in communities across Australia.

“At Domino’s, we are really passionate about education and supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs, scholars, leaders and creatives.” 

Cara Varian, Executive Director of Harding Miller Education Foundation, said the program empowers disadvantaged young women, to become a new generation of female leaders through education.

“Scholarships help to change the lives of Australian girls, with high academic potential who are experiencing acute economic disadvantage, by giving them access to better equipment, resources and support to enable them to reach their full educational potential,” she said.

“Many of the scholars supported by the foundation live in poverty, identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, have been impacted by domestic violence, or live in out-of-home care.

“Girls supported with equipment, money for resources, tutoring and coaching will be much more likely to complete high school and undertake further education after school.”

Give for Good Franchisee Grants Program is an initiative that enables Domino’s Australian franchisees to apply for a grant on behalf of registered charities and not-for-profit organisations in their local community of up to $5,000.
