The Chance of a Lifetime

Sincere thanks to Gandel Philanthropy and The Samuel Nissen Charitable Foundation, managed by Perpetual, for supporting the development of the new Western Chances communication channels.

See our blog to learn more about our new look. 

We help unlock the potential of young people in Melbourne’s West by supporting their dreams to pursue further education and career goals.

Our vision is to see young people in Melbourne's western suburbs achieve their full potential

Our scholarships support motivated young people who have an obvious talent and who may not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue their education and their dreams. One size doesn’t fit all at Western Chances. Scholarships are shaped to fit the needs of the young person. Help offer these young people and their families the chance of a lifetime.

Since 2004 we have:
• Invested $2.8million in young people
• Assisted over 1,900 young people
• Awarded over 3,400 scholarships
