Philanthropy supports innovation and builds infrastructure and program capacity in a distinct way. By becoming a member of our School Foundation, you will help transform the educational experience and lives of generations of young girls and women. 

Generous giving is an expression of love to our community

We support St Catherine’s School Foundation because we truly care. When giving is from our hearts, we are not only creating a bond, but also showing our appreciation. Generous giving is an expression of love to our community and members.” Andrew Huang & Angela Zhang

Generosity and giving are powerful messages that can quickly spread in a community.

We are just one of all the St Catherine’s parents who want similar things for their daughters and would be more than happy to contribute in any way they can, as part of the community. We are honoured to be part of that.

St Catherine’s Circle Member, Lisa Nicoll-Cooke

Women from my family have been attending St Catherine's for nearly one hundred years and I would like this sense of family connection to continue for other School families. I feel so strongly about family connection that I am willing to support this financially.

Learning From Participation and Generosity

We are really pleased to support the St Catherine’s Building Fund, in particular the development of the Blackbox Theatre, which will play a vital role in our girls’ School life. We intend to shape them to become women of the future.

Reducing the Urban and Rural Divide
