The Friends’ School is a not for profit organisation and simply would not be the school it is today without the community that surrounds it and the philanthropy they have provided. 

Since the School was established in 1887 with generous gifts of funds and resources, community philanthropy has contributed to transformational change at the School, providing opportunities and accelerating growth for Friends’ students.

Our students today benefit from the generosity of past generations. They go on to make a positive impact in the world. Now it is our turn to invest in the students of today and tomorrow.

There are a number of ways to give through volunteering, gifts of funds to scholarship or building programs, or gifts in kind that connect with the heritage and history of the School. All gifts are appreciated – no matter the size.

For further information about the giving programs at Friends’ and the impact you would like to have please contact Lucy Loney, Development Manager:
