Pinnacle Foundation seeks donations for new scholarships

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 27 June 2014 10:01 Written by // Cec Busby

The Pinnacle Foundation has announced its latest scholarship recipients.

Seventeen new LGBTI students have been given a brighter scholastic future thanks to the Foundation which assists scholars with mentoring and financial support for their studies.

The Foundation's funds are raised through donation and since launching four years ago, they have assisted over fifty students in achieving their dreams of attending university or finishing their HSC.

The 2014 scholarship recipients include students across a range of fields from arts to music, medicine to architecture.

As an organisation that fundraises largely through donations and sponsorships, Pinnacle is keen to remind anyone with spare cash that there is still time to make a tax deductable donation before the end of the financial year and to do your bit to help LGBTI students in need.

Make a donation here.
