Our Foundation aims to secure the future prosperity of the College and its community.

Throughout our 105-year history, St Leonard’s students have benefited from the kindness of those who have gone before them and the generosity of community members giving their time, talents and finances.

Our vision is to assist the College to have the best resources, the best staff and the best facilities, and to provide the best opportunities for all students.

As with many independent schools in Australia, school fees alone can cover day-to-day operational costs, but do not provide for ongoing improvements of facilities or the provision of access scholarships. We rely on the generous assistance from our community to ensure we can continue to provide an outstanding education for all students, and extend these opportunities to those students who would otherwise not be so fortunate.

All that we enjoy today – our heritage and modern facilities, our academic success and our innovative programs – was made possible thanks to individuals throughout our history who believed in our College and contributed towards ensuring its future.

Our Foundation seeks to build on our renowned community culture of philanthropy to secure the future success of the College and our students into the next 100 years and beyond. Harnessing this generosity guarantees the future of St Leonard’s College as one of Melbourne’s leading independent schools, and ensures the opportunities afforded by a St Leonard’s education can be enjoyed by generations to come.

Financial gifts can be directed to the Building Fund or the Scholarship Fund, or a general donation to the Foundation Fund can be made. All donations over $2 made to the Building, Scholarship or General Funds are tax deductible.
