The role of the Development Office at St Aloysius’ College is to co-ordinate the advancement of the College as a Catholic and Jesuit boys’ school while also preserving the traditions and heritage of the College. The Development Office provides a ‘one stop’ destination for activities involving fundraising, communications (The Aloysiad magazine and SAC E-mail News), Old Boy relations and promotion and marketing aspects of the College.
The Development Office works closely with the St Aloysius’ College Old Boys’ Union (SACOBU), the St Aloysius’ College Parents and Friends Association (P&F), St Aloysius' Past Parents Association (SAPPA), College staff and other groups within the Aloysian Family.
The Development Office is also the registered office of the St Aloysius’ College Foundation Limited (The Foundation). The Foundation is the primary fundraising vehicle for the College and is registered with the Australian Tax Office to provide tax deductible receipts for donations to the Foundation Building Fund, Library Fund and Bursary Fund.
The Rector, Principal and Council of St Aloysius’ College welcome offers of donations of all sizes, whether in connection with specific campaigns or to add to the College’s endowment, as these enable the College’s continuing development over the long term.
Donations must be freely given with no expectation of anything in return other than due thanks and recognition. The College is pleased to accept lawful donations which are given in good faith and which are compatible with the aims, objectives, values and strategic objectives of the College, the Society of Jesus and the Catholic Church. As the College values and safeguards its autonomy, integrity and reputation, the College Foundation will not accept donations when a condition of acceptance would compromise these fundamental principles.
Australian Independent Schools USA Foundation
The Australian Independent Schools USA Foundation (AISUSAF) was established in 2006 and the College is a founding affiliate of the organisation. The Foundation is incorporated and holds 501 (C) (3) tax deductible status.
The AISUSAF encourages individual and organisations to support education by soliciting tax deductible contributions. The USA based Board of Directors periodically awards grants to those schools affiliated with the Foundation. The Foundation’s Administrator, Ms Marisue Taube, also acts as the Foundation’s Secretary/Treasurer. Individuals residing outside the United States who receive income in the US may be eligible to receive tax deductibility for donations.
Members of the Aloysian Family who have a tax liability in the United States of America (US citizens and those with dual-nationality or ‘Green Cards’) are able to make gifts via the Australian Independent Schools USA Foundation (AISUSAF) and receive an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Tax Receipt.
