Annual Giving Program

Ballarat Clarendon College’s Annual Giving Program is a chance for our community to support essential projects at the school each year. Members of the Board of Directors have a robust capital-expenditure program; however, as prudent as they are with finances, we cannot achieve all of our goals from fee income alone. The Annual Giving Program has been designed to support the implementation of important projects, helping to improve the educational experience we provide for all of our students.

What is the Annual Giving Program? 

It aims to provide all members of the Clarendon community with a way to benefit the school. The Program is a tax-deductible opportunity to ensure the development of an optimal learning environment. Every gift makes a difference; your donation makes a strong statement of support for the long-term success and stability of the school.

Why donate to the school’s Annual Giving Program? 

The school is in a very strong position and we are proud of the accomplishments we have made since our founding, 150 years ago. Donations towards our building & library fund allow important projects to take place each year, so that other income can be utilised for purposes such as providing scholarship places. Donations towards our scholarship fund helps expand the number of scholarship places we can offer to academically curious and exceptionally talented students in acute financial need. Annual Giving supports every student at Ballarat Clarendon College, both present and future.

What level of gift is expected? 

A gift of any size is welcome, reflecting the circumstances of each donor. Whatever you can give will make a difference. No amount is too small as, together, many small gifts make a transformational sum. Our aim is to encourage those, who feel part of our community, to help us in securing the future of others.

What are the benefits? 

Our supporters are very important to us; they have made a commitment to the school and in return we have made a commitment to them through our Donor Charter – Our Promise to Donors. Your contribution, whether your time or financial support, is much appreciated. We recognise our supporters each year in ringaroo. Donors also will receive regular updates on the project’s progress, including photos, and personal invitations to events.
