St John’s College is a Catholic community whose members are inspired by high ideals of intellectual excellence, faithful Christian living and witness, and service to society.
Since 1858, each cohort of students have benefitted from the generosity of those before them. Support of the College represents not only confidence in current programs, but a belief in a collective future in which our current and former residents contribute and succeed in all walks of life.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of St John’s College Foundation. The Foundation was established by a large number of alumni dedicated to the long term financial needs of the College.
The Foundation’s funds have increased substantially as a result of its annual appeals which have generated donations in excess of half a million dollars and have enabled the corpus of the Foundation’s fund to exceed one million dollars. In recent years the Foundation has led the way in establishing scholarships to financially assist Indigenous students residing at the College through the income generated. Contributions to the Foundation will help ensure the College has the resources to fund important initiatives such as this.
St John’s is proud to be able to support young people. Living at St John’s is a privilege and an honour, as borne out by the number of applicants who seek a place here each year. With a top quality tutorial program, excellent pastoral care and a team of dedicated staff, the College has become sought after for its excellence and the warm sense of community.
In order to be able to continue to support students to reach their full potential, the College counts on your support, now more than ever.
Philanthropy is a personal journey. Your consideration of a gift is extremely important to St John’s because it will provide resources that have an immediate impact on the lives of our students, and will enable future generations to focus on their dreams and reach their full potential.
You can specify your gift to go to a particular area – scholarships, the St John’s College Foundation, building improvements or the Library Fund.
As one of the oldest colleges in Australia, St John’s is committed to the next generation of Catholic leaders leaving their mark on the global community.
Your donation will make a world of difference. Thank you so much for your consideration and help.
