The national office of the Country Education Foundation of Australia will be officially opened in Orange next week.
An anonymous donation to the CEF has enabled it buy a former house in Hill Street and convert it into its home.
The CEF is a not for profit organisation which provides funding to rural and regional students to embark on tertiary studies.
Student grants range from $500 to $5000 per student a year to help buy study tools for university students, equipment for apprentices and relocation costs.
CEF CEO Juliet Petersen said the building housed the national office team plus other tenants.
"With such extraordinary generosity aside it is the shared belief in our mission that marks this donation with such significance," she said,
"Utilising these funds to purchase our own premises was a logical financial investment in the education of rural and regional Australians and their communities by ensuring our own sustainable future."
Ms Petersen said it boosted the fundraising efforts of the CEF's 44 volunteer-led organisations.
She said it added to a year of achievements for the organisation.
That included the launch of the CEF into Victoria which meant it now had a foothold in six states and territories.
Ms Petersen said an alumni awards ceremony and a national conference were also highlights.
The official opening is from 5pm-7pm on Thursday March 5 at the office at 52 Hill Street.
