Become a Guardian Angel and help children in foster care to achieve their dreams
Leave a lasting legacy
Leaving a gift to The Pyjama Foundation in your Will is a special way to make a lasting and positive difference to the lives of children living in out-of-home care.
Your support helps us to deliver our life-changing mentoring program which benefits not only young people, but also their families.
By extending your support to The Pyjama Foundation through a Gift in your Will, you have the unique ability to change lives well into the future – leaving a legacy that will have you recognised as a ‘Guardian Angel’.
You will help future generations of children in care gain access to a learning mentor who will help them to achieve their dreams.
You will help children who have experienced trauma to build resilience, self-efficacy and confidence to propel in their education allowing them to soar higher in their future.
The impact of your gift
Not only will your gift provide young people their very own special Pyjama Angel mentor, it can also support The Pyjama Foundation in the following ways:
- Love of Learning Program
One-on-one weekly mentors known as Pyjama Angels are recruited, screened, and trained to deliver an evidence-based literacy and numeracy program to empower them with learning, life skills and confidence.
- Teen Life Skills Program
Our Teen Life Skills Program for 12–24-year-olds who are transitioning out of the Foster Care system. The Program focuses on five key areas including life skills, becoming work-ready, building resilience, boosting self-esteem, and improving health and wellbeing.
- Volunteer Phone Service
Our vital phone service for volunteers. This provides Pyjama Angels and foster carers emotional support and practical advice including age-appropriate resources, dealing with sensitive situations, addressing diverse learning needs and ways to work with First Nations children to recognise their culture. Thousands of calls are received each year.
- Learning Resources
Learning Resources such as books, games, puzzles and activities play a fundamental role in making learning more fun for children. The Pyjama Foundation currently has 11 locations for our resource centre – available for our Pyjama Angels and children to use during their visits.
Funding critical research to support the key components of our programs to ensure they continue to influence academic resilience, school connectedness and learning confidence.
