The Foundation works closely alongside the College through the College Council and the Principal.

The Geelong College Foundation is reliant upon the generosity of the wider College community (parents, grandparents and Old Collegians). As a result of this generosity, the Foundation has been able to contribute dynamically to many aspects of College life which have resulted in new and improved learning opportunities for students and staff.

The Geelong College Foundation is managed by a dedicated professional Board supported by the Advancement Co-ordinator, Mrs Sally Sadler, who can be contacted on (03) 5226 3779 or at foundation@geelongcollege.vic.edu.au.

Securing our Future

The Geelong College Foundation was founded to preserve, develop and secure the financial future of The Geelong College. Since its inception, the Foundation has relied on the generosity of the wider College community and as a result of this philanthropic and forward looking culture, we have been able to contribute significantly to the life of the College. To learn about how you can help, please contact The Geelong College Foundation via email at foundation@geelongcollege.vic.edu.au or by phone on (03) 5226 3779 or (03) 5226 3194.

Annual Giving

Each year the Foundation asks for the support of the Geelong College community for special projects designed to enhance learning and life at The Geelong College. This year, rather than asking for help for priority projects, we are simply asking you to help students, whose families have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe no student should miss out on the benefits of a Geelong College education due to financial hardship, and your gift, be it large or small, will go a long way in helping these families who need assistance with fees. Of course, if you prefer, you can give to the Building Fund, the Dr Bill Williams Tjungurrayi Scholarship Fund or to The Geelong College Foundation.

Regards,

Sandy Hutton (OGC 1973) - President of the Geelong College Foundation
