Since its days on the Terrace, philanthropy has played an important role in the history and culture of Aquinas College – a proud tradition that continues today.
In 1998, the Aquinas College Foundation was established under the auspices of the Christian Brothers to foster this proud tradition of giving within our community.
Since its inception, the Foundation has played an important role in helping the College to achieve its mission ‘to provide a holistic education within a Catholic framework to support boys on their journey to becoming good men in our community,’ helping to fund many of the important capital works projects that have transformed not only the landscape of Aquinas, but the lives of our students.
With a focus on fundraising and fund management, the Foundation aims to:
- Raise funds to preserve, improve and develop the holistic educational opportunities and facilities at the College
- Raise funds to ensure the ongoing success of appropriate student programs at the College, including scholarships and allowances
- Encourage and foster the interest and financial support of past students, parents of students and friends of the College
- Manage the funds of the Foundation in a prudent manner
The College facilities our boys enjoy today are the result of years of support and philanthropy from past and present community members. We look forward to continuing to work together with you, our community, to progress a successful future for Aquinas College.
