Annual Appeal 2016
The Scots College Foundation embarks on a general Annual Appeal campaign each year to raise funds to benefit the learning environment of our students.
To find out more about this year's Appeal, and how you can help, please visit the Annual Appeal.
Our Vision and Mission
The Scots College Foundation exists to ensure that future generations of Scots boys will enjoy a world-class education in state-of-the-art facilities with a diverse student body. The Foundation provides support for ongoing capital works projects and acquisitions in line with the College Master Plan. The Foundation also provides support in the form of scholarships and bursaries for boys whose presence will add to the richness and diversity of the student body but whose family financial situations would otherwise prevent them from attending the College.
Purpose of the Foundation
Since its inception, many thousands of boys have attended the College, many of whom have gone on to achieve excellence in all sectors of society: academia, science, medicine, sport and the arts.
The state-of-the-art learning environment Scots boys currently experience is a result of the foresight and generosity of the College and its community over many generations.
In addition, Bursaries and Scholarships have been distributed to support the education of many deserving boys at The Scots College.
Your support of the Foundation will help continue our forefathers' legacy, by contributing to the development of world-class facilities and the continuation of our generous Scholarship and Bursary programs, enriching the educational experience for many Scots boys in the years to come.
Ways of donating
Donations are welcome at any time and membership to the Foundation is granted to all donors of $5,000 or more. The Foundation offers different forms of recognition dependent on the level of the gift. Membership of the Foundation is for a period of six years after a donor's most recent gift.
A bequest is a gift specified within your will which provides a way for you to make a lasting gift to something you care about. By making a bequest to The Scots College you can retain the use and enjoyment of your assets during your lifetime and still provide a valuable gift to the College in the future.
Your gift is a very personal decision and there are a variety of ways in which you can make a contribution to the College.
Your solicitor will be able to advise the best way of including a bequest to The Scots College Foundation when you are drafting your will. If you have already made your will, you can add a codicil to include the Foundation — a simple and inexpensive process.
The Aspinall Society has been established to honour and recognise, in their lifetime, those who have remembered the College in their wills.
If you would like more information about our Bequests program, the Development Office is able to assist you. Please contact us at (02) 9391 7606.
How will my donation or bequest be used?
All donations and bequests to the Foundation are used exclusively to benefit The Scots College. You can direct your donation or bequest to one of three funds in the Foundation:
- Scholarship Fund — to provide scholarships and bursaries for boys whose presence will add to the richness and diversity of the student body but whose family financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from attending the College.
- Building Fund — to provide for ongoing capital works projects and acquisitions in support of the College Master Plan and to ensure world-class facilities.
- Education Fund — to provide grants to the College to enhance the educational environment at Scots.
