As a not-for-profit , Youth Opportunities is fuelled and funded by the community.
We recognise that, like all organisations, we have a level of indirect costs that support the delivery of our services through either running, funding, monitoring or further developing our program.
To ensure our services are accessible by those who need it most, our organisation is structured to heavily subsidise the cost of delivery meaning the burden isn’t placed on schools and families.
Subsidy is based on a school index rating, cohort, accessibility to services and capacity.
To support the additional cost of the delivery, we focus on fundraising activities, private giving, events, grants and partnerships.
We have established key significant financial investments from a group of foundation partners who recognise the challenges for fundraising and the realities of operation costs. These foundation partners directly cover the overheads of our organisation meaning every additional dollar raised goes directly towards the delivery of our services.
