The Mat Goggin Foundation supports Tasmanian youth in Mathew’s native Australia with scholarship assistance for furthering their education. In August 2009, the Australian Taxation Office endorsed the foundation as a deductible-gift recipient after the ATO recognized that the foundation is delivering something uniquely special to school-age Tasmanians between 15 and 19. It is hoped this endorsement status will be a means to generate significant scholarship money in the years ahead, all funds of which will be used to reward young people with an entrepreneurial spirit. As an altruistic organization, the Mat Goggin Foundation’s vision is Scholarship for Education through Entrepreneurship. SEE represents the primary focus of the foundation’s community-building agenda. SEE aims to encourage Tasmanian youth into community engagement through demonstrated entrepreneurial initiative.
