2019 Catholic Education Foundation Annual Appeal Day Fundraiser

For the fifth year running the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) is holding our CEF Annual Appeal Day. We invite all Primary and Secondary schools in the Sydney Archdiocese to show their support for the work of the Foundation and participate in the annual fundraiser. By being involved you will help to support families in need in your local community.


Please save the date in your school’s calendar for week commencing Monday, 16 September 2019 (Week 9, Term 3), on any day which is most suitable for your school. If this week is not suitable, please select your own date, preferably during the week prior or week after.

What’s involved?

Students are invited to participate in a mufti day and dress as their favourite movie character for a gold coin donation. Money raised to be donated to the CEF Bursary Fund to support children and their families.
