The Loose Change Sponsorship Scheme

The Loose Change Sponsorship Scheme [Loose Change] was established in January 2012 by Sheryl Taylor, a primary school teacher living in Melbourne. Loose Change is a community-based, not-for-profit charity that supports the New Outlook Centre Tanzania [NOCET], a small orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania. Tanzania is on the east coast of Africa, between Kenya [to the north], and Mozambique [to the south].

Loose Change is registered with the Victorian Department of Justice as a fund-raising organisation. Sheryl raises money through monthly or annual sponsorship, as well as donations and other fund-raising activities. A number of community organisations also collect loose change at their meetings and bank this money for Loose Change. Sponsors are family, friends, colleagues, social and community groups.

The fundamental operating principles for Loose Change are:

> No overheads

> As close to 100% of the money collected goes directly to benefit NOCET

> All sponsors are informed as to how and when donated money is spent.
