Cotton On Foundation raise $5M for quality education through the sale of masks

Thanks to you, our incredible team and customers, Cotton On Foundation face masks have raised over $5 million AUD globally – and counting!

Like all Cotton On Foundation product, 100% of proceeds from the sale of face masks support our global education and healthcare initiatives.

Your support helps the Cotton On Foundation make a real impact on the ground. Because of you, we’ve been able to support the most vulnerable children and communities during these tough times.

In Australia and across the world, the $5 million AUD raised through the sale of face masks will help our Foundation to:

Australia:

  • Support Indigenous teachers in Yirrkala and Homelands Schools in the Northern Territory to become qualified teachers.
  • Support youth mental health projects around the country to reach 2000 young people.

Globally:

  • Continue to deliver food packs to students not in school across Uganda and South Africa.
  • Upgrade Busibo Primary School for 900 children in Southern Uganda.
  • Provide 4 million nutritious meals globally once students go back to school.

As schools slowly re-open across the regions our Foundation works in, teams across Australia, South Africa, Thailand and Uganda are continuing to take every step to keep students safe and healthy.
