Perth College Foundation

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” - Kathy Calvin: Former President and CEO of the United Nations Foundation

About the Perth College Foundation

A strong culture of giving has always been at the heart of Perth College’s history and community. This began in 1915 with generous donations from benefactors William Loton and Septimus Burt, who enabled the School’s founding Sisters to purchase the land where our School stands today.

Perth College Foundation continues this culture of giving by providing a vehicle through which philanthropic funds can be directed towards the School. The objective of the Foundation is to support the long-term financial security of Perth College.

Thanks to the wonderful generosity of our Old Girls, current and past parents, and the wider Perth College Community, we have been able to anticipate and provide for funding needs that are over and above those covered by school fees and government grants. Philanthropy continues to play a central role in supporting the evolution of the School’s campus and providing outstanding learning experiences for our students.
