The Restaurant & Catering Educational Foundation Trust (The Foundation) was established in Sydney in 2013 to raise funds for support programs that build capacity and support skills development in the restaurant and catering industry.
The Foundation is administered through a trust that is registered through the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing in NSW to raise and distribute funds for charitable purposes and overseen by a Board of Trustees.
The Foundations’ vision is to:
- Educate and train current managers, owners and staff for employment longevity;
- Integrate pathways to sustainable and supported employment; and
- Promote growth, innovation and entrepreneurial activity within small- to-medium businesses.
DONATIONS AND CONTRIBUTIONS
There are many ways individuals and corporations can donate to the Foundation. All contributions of $2 or more are tax deductible and can either be general or for special purpose. Special purpose contributions tie funds to a specific program, activity or task e.g. training of baristas in Victoria. A range of options exist to make a lasting and meaningful contribution to the future of the industry.
