Fundraising and social events

MCFCO is a not-for-profit organisation and each year the voluntary Committee of Management needs to organise fundraising initiatives to pay for educational and social activities for the children, learning environment enhancements (i.e. toys, books, equipment) and staff awards. While Monash University provided significant funds to establish our fantastic Centre, we rely on parental contributions to meet the needs of our children and make sure our Centre remains wonderful. 


Throughout the year we will be offering a range of primary and secondary fundraising initiatives and we require parents to get involved as much as possible. We realise certain fundraising initiatives are more appealing to some families than others, but there is an expectation that parents will be actively involved with at least 2 to 3 activities per year.



How can you get involved and support the Centre?

Below is a list of suppliers whom MCFCO is associated with. By purchasing through these organisations you contribute to our fundraising account. Be sure to share this information with family and friends - anyone can get involved - it’s not limited to MCFCO parents!
