Gifts are a great way to pass on the Grace experience to new generations and safeguard the college’s future. Your donation may honour someone dear, or as a past resident you may wish to give back. You may also simply be passionate about the power of education. No matter the size, every donation, bequest and bursary makes a positive difference.
Transitions in life are always challenging – especially that first move away from home. Supporting that move provides the foundation for our next generation of scientists, researchers, innovators, educators, healthcare workers and change-makers looking to solve the challenges facing our world.
Your donation has a direct positive impact for residents who otherwise would not be able to attend college. Just $90 provides one day of all-inclusive accommodation for a student in financial need. A donation of $3,000 provides a targeted Entry Scholarship for:
- a person of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background
- an Australian from a drought-affected rural or remote area; or
- an international student moving to Australia for study; or
- an outstanding sportsperson, arts or community contributor.
Donations can be made via card, cheque, money order, or through a direct bank deposit.
