  • several annual student scholarships,
  • an annual monetary gift to the college to purchase items to benefit the college students,
  • support and hospitality at college functions, and uniforms for families in need.

DONATING ITEMS


All good, clean, resalable items are always welcome!

There are two options for second-hand items:

Option 1:  Donate all items with all profits going to the Friends of St Mary’s College to offer services and scholarships to the college. 


Option 2:  Sell your BLAZERS and JACKETS to the Friends of St Mary’s College.

If going with option 2, you will need to complete a separate Second-Hand Uniform Purchase Agreement (see below) for each blazer/jacket being offered for purchase, please safety pin this form to your item. Or complete the form with the college receptionist.

Only blazers and jackets in very good condition will be considered for purchase. Blazers need to be dry-cleaned. 

If the Second-Hand Uniform Shop already has ample stock, we may decide not to purchase an item. The Friends of St Mary’s College will pay up to $100 for a blazer and pay up to $25 for a jacket that is purchased.  Payment is made at the end of the month for these items. Receipt and payment of the item will be notified by the Alumni office.


Payment will be made by direct credit to your nominated bank account. Items can be handed into the college office or directly to the Second-Hand Uniform Shop on one of the opening days.  If an item is not purchased by the Friends of St Mary’s College, you will be advised by email and the item will be returned to the School Office for collection.  Any item not collected within a month of email advice being provided may be discarded. We welcome the donation of all college items of clothing however we will only consider purchasing blazers or jackets, as we no longer are offering commission on other items.

On behalf of the Friends of St Mary’s College, THANK YOU for supporting our service and your college.
