Keeping the College at the forefront of education while preserving a rich heritage
The role of the Foundation Office at St Aloysius’ College is the advancement of the College as a Catholic and Jesuit boys’ school alongside the preservation of the traditions and heritage of the College.
The Foundation 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 Foundation Office is also the registered office of the St Aloysius’ College Foundation Limited (The College Foundation) which was established in 1989 by a group of Old Boys and Parents of the College. The College Foundation is the primary fundraising and investment vehicle for the College and is registered with the Australian Tax Office to provide tax deductible receipts for donations to the Building Fund, Library Fund and Bursary Fund.
The gift of choice
The College is grateful for every gift and offer you the chance to choose where it goes. St Aloysius’ offers three tax-deductible Funds to which you can direct your donation. Choose the one you prefer to support.
The Building Fund
For the provision of new capital buildings and land acquisition and the renovation and remodelling of existing College facilities. Since 1989, new capital developments and the renovation and extension of existing facilities at the College as well as land acquisition, totals more than $45 million. Of this total, over $30 million has been spent since 2005.
The Library Fund
For the provision of books, computer software and other academic material that are used in the College Libraries. Since 2001 the College Foundation has provided over $900,000 to the College for the acquisition of new academic materials for the College Libraries through the Foundation Library Fund.
The Bursary Fund
For the provision of funds to maintain and expand the College Bursary Program (means tested scholarships). To date, the Bursary fund has contributed to the education of hundreds of boys.
All donations to St Aloysius’ College, regardless of the size, make a positive difference. They have provided the opportunity for many young men, for whom it would not have been economically possible, to receive the gift of an Aloysian Jesuit education. They enable the College to build and renovate facilities as well as acquire additional academic resources that are above and beyond the normal College budget process.
Opportunities to Donate
Members of the Aloysian family are given several opportunities to donate throughout the year.
|The Aloysius Annual Fund
||The Fund asks every member of the Aloysian family for a yearly, tax-deductible gift to the College.
|The New Parent Pledge Appeal
||New Parents attend a dinner in their first year at the College and hear about future plans for the College and how they can help.
||When major College building works are planned, the College will seek support from the Aloysian family.
|Corporate Matching Gifts
||A matching program run by several Australian and International companies to support their employees’ charitable donations.
||A bequest makes a positive, life-changing contribution to future generations of Aloysians.
||Members of the Aloysian family can request that mourners make a memorial gift to the College.
Each generation at the College has benefited from the generosity of the generations that went before it, and through continued fundraising efforts, more generations will benefit as well. Maintaining the facility, meeting the challenges of technology and most importantly, providing this education to all who desire it are just a few of the challenges and inspirations that keep us focused on the need to raise money.
