Why do people donate to scholarships?

The beauty of helping students through a scholarship is that your gift will benefit students where they most need help.

A scholarship can immediately impact students, giving them a chance, or a second chance, to pursue their education. And the effects of that gift – investing in our future leaders – last a lifetime.

There are a number of ways that you can help St Mary's college scholarship fund. This can be a one-off donation, or on an annual basis.

Your donation towards a scholarship can help a student towards paying their fees, their uniform, or other items they need to support their educational journey with the college.

If you have particular criteria on how and what you wish to donate please talk or email the college. ​​​​​​

The Board of Proprietors and the STMC Alumni encourages and facilitates the generous gifts and donations which flow from past students, families, and businesses who have had a past or current connection with the college.

Our focus over the coming months, and into 2022 is to ensure that the vision and passion of sisterhood through Catherine McAuley's eyes and endeavours continue to educate and empower our young women.

We welcome donations towards,

  • Scholarships, Growing Great Women!
  • Student Experiences,
  • Equipment and Technology,
  • Teaching and Leadership,
  • Building Infrastructure and Enhancement,
  • Student Financial Hardship,
  • General Board of Proprietors Fund (infrastructure of the college, building upgrades, etc)

Or, in kind.

Can you provide goods and services?

There are many ways you can give, other than in monetary terms.

I would like information about establishing a scholarship, please email or talk to our Alumni Manager.
