On behalf of the St Peter’s College Foundation, I am delighted to share the 2020 Impact of Giving booklet which serves to highlight the impact of philanthropy at St Peter’s College as well as thank our community of donors.
Since 2018, I have witnessed a growing culture of philanthropy at the School and in 2020, despite the challenges of COVID-19, the community collectively gifted $2.34 million to the St Peter’s College Foundation. This year the Foundation has again raised records funds, clearly demonstrating our community’s commitment to maintaining excellence in education, facilities and community service at St Peter’s College.
Recent benefaction has enabled the redevelopment of Big Quad, increased needs-based scholarship opportunities and in 2020 supported families financially affected by the global pandemic through the establishment of the Headmaster’s Hardship Bursary.
I continue to be humbled by the passion and dedication that members of the St Peter’s College community share through their desire to give back. This year I was overwhelmed by the response to the School’s inaugural Giving Day, with over 700 members of our community raising in excess of $840,000 to establish the 175-Year Anniversary Scholarship. This scholarship will provide talented and promising students, regardless of circumstance, the opportunity to access a St Peter’s College education and I extend my sincere thanks to everyone who supported this important endeavour.
