Be a Dream Maker
-Trainee Sponsorship Program
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Trainee sponsors provide vital funds for the KOTO Trainee Sponsorship Program. Combined with the revenues from KOTO’s social enterprises – KOTO Villa and catering – sponsorship funds enable (pre-COVID-19) 150 young persons each year to achieve their hospitality dream.
Some amazing organisations sponsor a traineeship class or multiple trainees!
These include The Intrepid Foundation, Navitas, Roll’d, Experian, Lorinet Foundation, EM power and Australian AID . Many individuals and families sponsor individual trainees and gain great satisfaction from watching their progress to becoming hospitality professionals. Sponsorships are tax deductible for Australian, UK and US tax payers.
KOTO has four sponsorship categories, designed to meet different budgets. Pay in monthly instalments or in full on the Give Now platform.
