Who are we?

Originating as a partnership between Mallee Family Care and the then three water authorities back in 2000, Chances for Children has evolved over the years and is now a community partnership in every sense of the word.


More commonly known as “Chances” we are a funding body focused on providing financial support and mentoring to recipients, who without our help, may not have the opportunity to pursue their education or realise their talents in sport or the arts.

We tailor our funding and mentoring to each individual recipient, to give them the best chance for success.  We engage them with their community and with role models, so that they have the appropriate emotional and practical support throughout their journey.

Our locally based fund is supported by our community, both financially and by in-kind contributions. Our support can include financial assistance for families with a child with specific learning requirements, the cost of training, equipment and competition for talented athletes and the costs of studying at University.

With patrons, supporters and life members spanning every sector of our community, Chances has become recognised as a valuable contributor to the lives and futures of young people living in northwest Victoria and southwest New South Wales.

With Chances, dreams really can come true.
