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 are responsible for governance. The Foundation complements the work of the College Board in ensuring the best possible learning and co-curricular spaces are provided, and very importantly maintaining the diversity of the student body through scholarships and bursaries.
