Perth College Foundation

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give” Winston Churchill

A ‘Culture of Giving’ has always been evident in the Perth College community and dates back to 1915 when generous donations from benefactors, William Loton and Septimus Burt, enabled Perth College’s founding sisters to purchase the property where our school stands today.

Over 100 years on Perth College can be proud of the significant contributions our parents, students, Old Girls and wider community have made through their financial support. The communities’ generosity has resulted in the construction of our Judith Cottier Theatre, the Gymnasium, Jean Rogerson Science Centre, and Founders Centre for Early Learning and the fit-out of Excelsior House.

In addition, scholarships have always been an important focus and through the continued generosity of our donors we have been able to offer numerous girls valuable scholarships over the years, giving them opportunities which may not have otherwise been possible.
