Welcome to the
Gary Walden Fund
The Gary Walden Fund was established in 2007 under the auspice of the Department of Education, to raise funds to enable projects that build capacity for special needs children within our public schools.
The Gary Walden Fund, was established in February 2007, following the passing of Gary Walden, Director for Schools, Macarthur to continue the work he pioneered. The fund is managed by volunteers and started with $10,000.00, contributed by mourners in lieu of flowers at Gary’s funeral.
The fund has relied on fundraising and donations since its commencement. All funds raised by the Gary Walden Fund are directed back into the school community to enhance the learning of children with special needs through grants to purchase resources and fund creative programs. Each year the number of requests for funding far exceeds the money raised.
