The Foundation has a rich history in the region since its establishment in 2000, having evolved from the Newcastle Technical and Further Education Committee Trust Fund which received its first donation in 1936 to provide skills for employment.

Hunter TAFE Foundation now provides financial support to TAFE NSW students in the Hunter and Central Coast who are experiencing either personal or financial hardship, assisting them in completing their studies.
