Northcote Thrive Fund logo

The generous financial support of families, alumni and local business partners via the Northcote Thrive Fund, allows us to fund innovative programs, improve school spaces and resources and provide assistance to students in need.

There are four purpose-directed funds under the Northcote Thrive Fund which are governed by an approved charter and ATO fund rules. Community members can also offer services or support through the CONTRIBUTE element.
