A few simple answers to common questions about the role of the Foundation Office
Q. Why does St Aloysius’ College ask for gifts in addition to charging school fees?
A. The fees charged by the College do not incorporate a capital component, thus all funds for the construction of new educational facilities must be raised through fundraising.
