St Patrick's College Foundation

Caring for our Community

The St Patrick's College Foundation is the community and fundraising arm of the College. Their aim is to care for our community by supporting the College's 'good will activities'. These activities include the:

The Foundation also supports, to a lesser extent, significant College building projects.

St Patrick's College has a proud history of giving. Without the generosity and commitment of many individuals throughout our rich history, St Patrick's College simply wouldn't be the remarkable school it is today.

Our Tax Deductible Funds

The Foundation is grateful to receive any donations that enable it to continue to support the 'good-will' activities of the College, including the Bursary program, the Certa Bonum Certamen Fund and the Paddy's Van. You can show your support of the Foundations work by donating to one of our three tax deductible funds:

Bursary Fund

Donations to the Bursary Fund help us to provide bursaries to those students whose families face financial hardship and otherwise would not be in a position to attend the College. A bursary is the gift of an education to an underprivileged child. Our bursaries are offered on family need and circumstance rather than academic or sporting achievement. Donations to the Bursary Fund are tax deductible.

Building Fund

The Building Fund was established to assist the College with the costs of acquisition, construction and maintenance of College buildings and associated facilities in support of the College Master Plan. While tuition fees cover a major portion of an education at St. Patrick's College, they do not provide all the funds needed to undertake building projects and new major capital works. The Foundation Building Fund is vital for the provision of new buildings and resources. Donations to the Building Fund are tax deductible.
