ASF's End of Year Celebration

ASF scholars and advocates, scholarship providers and NFP sector leaders attended ASF’s Christmas event last week in celebration of our fifth year of growth and development. The event was generously hosted by Corrs Chambers Westgarth at their brand new headquarters in Sydney’s CBD.

We were delighted to hear from Corey Payne on the night. Corey is an ASF Scholar, former NRL footballer, 2013 NSW Young Australian of the Year and Founding Executive Chairman of the Future Direction Network (FDN), which aims to raise the level of university participation rates amongst students from low SES backgrounds.

In 2012, Corey was awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship that enabled him to travel to Brazil, Spain, the UK and South Africa this year to research programs that help disadvantaged kids further their education. His experiences gave him an informed understanding of culturally diverse ambition and aspiration building programs that could be employed in Australia upon his return.

Corey shared with us his insights about the future of the not-for-profit sector and the importance of measuring the work of NFP organisations in order to better sustain and increase their impact on the community going forward.

ASF would like to offer our thanks to Corey for sharing his experiences, and to everyone who showed their support of ASF and the NFP sector at the event. We look forward to another year working to support and develop the not-for-profit sector with scholarship and training opportunities.
