How can we make this claim? We’ve been looking at our impact and our St Jude’s families have collectively saved AU$3.8M by having costs covered by scholarships. These savings are in replacement of schooling costs that typically caused families to go into debt or sell their assets to a value almost one and a half times what they would earn in a year.

So what does this look like for St Jude’s families?

The School of St Jude is helping families overcome the cycle of poverty TODAY. From the moment a student receives a scholarship at St Jude’s, their family is already on the road to saving over AU$10,000 throughout their child’s 13 years of school. They save on uniforms, tuition, transport, food, school supplies and health costs. It’s much more than education.
