We exist to give young LGBT+ students

the chance to achieve their full potential,

To light the spark within.


Even in today’s society, LGBT+ people need assistance to overcome the extra hurdles they encounter.

The Pinnacle Foundation’s focus is simple – we are helping LGBT+ young adults to reach their full potential, and overcome their disadvantages.  Our goal is to help young people position themselves for success, transform society for the better, and enable them to be an inspiration to the generation that follows them

We provide financial scholarships to students across Australia.

Those who want to complete high school, or are ready to start university or TAFE we can help. Irrespective of their goals, they aspire to we offer the financial support and resources they need to kick-start their career path.

We believe that mentorship is as important as financial support.

We know that some young LGBT+ students can face a tough time coming out to their families, friends and schools, with some finding themselves without the money and support needed to keep up their studies. Our scholarships program can help with that, but equally as important, we can provide mentoring support from someone in the same professional field to guide you through your studies. Someone who is the same gender and sexuality as you and knows what it’s like to walk in your shoes.

The Pinnacle Foundation relies solely on donations.

What we do cannot be done without the support of many individual and corporate donors and supporters – we do not receive any federal or state government funding.

Our goal is to have enough money to fund many scholarships every year, and with the continued support of our Community, to strengthen our national presence.
