Helping kids thrive in a connected world

Powered by the Telstra Foundation, Telstra Kids champions local community connections for kids in Australia.

We fund the little things that make a big difference to kids’ lives: supporting projects in digital citizenship, arts and culture, education, health, the environment, sport and recreation.

Each year, Telstra Kids gives a million dollars in grants to local community groups that help kids to play and learn.

Telstra Kids supports school digital making activities and cyber-safety programs, veggie gardens, bouncing balls for sports clubs, books for bubs in childcare, just to name a few. It funds thousands of local, grassroots community activities that sprout up across Australia in response to local needs.

At the heart of Telstra Kids is a Telstra employee... an individual who tells us where the dollars should be donated... and gets a chance to feel like a million bucks, by investing just a few minutes to fill in the online application.
