One of the greatest strengths of St Vincent’s College is our community and its generosity of spirit in giving back.
Since 1858 St Vincent’s College has grown and developed through the generosity of many benefactors, people passionate about the College and its students. We have a strong tradition of ‘giving’ and much that the students enjoy today is the result of the foresight and generosity of previous generations. Today we have the privilege to be part of this vision and the responsibility to ensure its longevity.
St Vincent’s College Foundation established as a fully incorporated company in 1991, has harnessed this generosity and is focused on building philanthropic support to ensure the College can continue to meet and adapt to a changing educational climate and deliver to each student the best opportunities and enriched experiences.
The Foundation operates from within the Advancement Office, and is overseen by a Board of Directors, who is responsible for governance. The Foundation operates under the mandate from the College Board and is charged with ensuring ongoing financial support is secured for both learning and co-curricular infrastructure and importantly the provision of scholarships and bursaries.
St Vincent’s College Foundation manages the following funds:
- Building Fund – to develop and provide funds for improvement to existing buildings and the provision of new facilities. Gifts to the Building Fund are tax deductible.
- Scholarship Fund – to provide funds for scholarships and bursaries, providing opportunities for students who might otherwise be unable to benefit from a St Vincent's College education. Gifts to the Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.
