Annual Giving

We would like to thank our St Leonard's College community for joining with us to support our Inspiring Innovations development during our previous Inspired Giving day, held on Thursday 9 May 2019. Our 2020 Annual Giving day, originally scheduled for Thursday 11 June, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our College Foundation would like to express our deepest gratitude for the continued support of our community.

St Leonard’s College Annual Giving Overview

Since its establishment in 2014, our extensive community of Old Collegians, families and friends have found it in their hearts to make a financial contribution to the Foundation. These gifts make a real and tangible difference for our students and their learning.

Our Annual Giving is an opportunity for us to highlight just how this generosity has made a difference. Our Scholarship fund now supports nine students from diverse backgrounds who are engaged in their learning and contributing to the many facets of their College life.

Our Building Fund has supported numerous projects including the building of the Visual Arts Centre, the refurbishment of the Cornish Library, the TC Woolhouse Theatre and drama rooms and the new Learning Futures Centre. Students from across the campus are enjoying and benefitting from the learning opportunities provided in these innovative spaces.

Through these projects and the generosity of our community, the culture of philanthropy at St Leonard’s College continues to grow. Your help allows the Foundation to secure the future prosperity of the College and the many opportunities afforded to St Leonard’s students for generations to come. To help others is rich and rewarding for both the benefactor and the beneficiary.

Inspired Giving day – Thursday 9 May 2019

On behalf of Stuart Davis, our College Principal, and Jen Neate, Chair of our St Leonard’s College Foundation, we thank our College community for joining us in supporting our Inspiring Innovations development during our Inspired Giving day held on Thursday 9 May.

For 24 hours only, every dollar donated was doubled thanks to the passionate community members who matched contributions dollar for dollar, inspiring all of our community to join together to reach our fundraising goal of $400,000. Together, we raised a total of $415,000 which is an outstanding result. Thank you!

How it Worked

Our community members donated to our St Leonard’s College Inspiring Innovations project on Thursday 9 May and their tax deductible donations were matched by our generous matcher donors.

For example, a gift of $50 meant $100 for the project.

$250 = $500

$500 = $1,000

$1,000 = $2,000
