Gowns for Good

Make your grad gown go further.

Graduation is a huge milestone in anyone’s life. But even more so if you grew up in a part of the world where access to education isn’t taken for granted. And while purchasing a graduation gown may be a small expense for some of us here in Australia, in many developing regions, it is a significant expense.

At GownTown, we believe that graduation is about more than just pomp and ceremony – its about celebrating the value of education – and nowhere is it more important to have that celebration than those parts of the world where education faces challenges. So with the help of generous past customers, we are supporting a 'Gowns for Good' program.

How Gowns for Good works.

  1. Once you're done with your gown, register it in gown in the Gowns for Good program using the form at the bottom of this page.
  2. We'll provide you with a local address and a code during the registration process - simply package your gown set and send it to the address provided.
  3. We take care of the rest. Once we have enough gowns to fill a shipment, GownTown will cover the cost of shipping to Africa, and arrange distribution to a prioritised list of schools and universities in underprivilidged regions. This year, our focus is on selecting institutions and degrees that are community-serving and are experiencing workforce shortages.

Wherever possible, we will try to keep you posted on where you gown ends up, and hopefully be able to send you some happy photos from some very thankful graduates!
