We would like to thank those who have invested in Ashgrove’s future. Their support is transforming the lives of current students and those of generations to come.

Philanthropy supports a wide array of projects at Ashgrove, including the provision of bursaries and scholarships. These ensure that talented boys from a range of different backgrounds have the opportunity to fulfil their potential at the College. Support is also needed to maintain and enhance the extensive College grounds, fund social projects run by the boys for the good of the wider community and assist with the upkeep of our buildings, including the restoration of The Tower. Donations also play a fundamental role in providing new buildings and facilities to enrich the boys’ educational development and achievement.

Without your support all this would not be possible.

The Marist College Ashgrove Appeal offers a platform for all members of the community to give their best gift to either a bursary for a boys education or the Building Fund which is crucial to the development of infrastructure at the College, ensuring that students are offered the best learning opportunities in first-class facilities.

These tax-deductible contributions provide an essential income stream to enable the College to progress.

Marist College Ashgrove acknowledges, with appreciation, the tremendous support of parents, Old Boys, staff and friends. These individuals, through their collective philanthropy, support the vitality of College life at Marist through their commitment and generosity to the College. We thank all those whose gifts enable Marist College Ashgrove to provide an excellent, well-rounded education to its best and most important asset – our boys and their futures.

SOMETIMES IT IS DIFFICULT TO SEE HOW, AS INDIVIDUALS, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO OTHERS IN OUR COMMUNITY, HOWEVER COLLECTIVELY AS A GROUP WE CAN.

‘Strength in Numbers’ is a program aimed at providing a Marist education for deserving boys who would otherwise miss out due to family circumstances.

For those who have received a Marist Education, you will know that you have not only gained an education and strong values, but you have also gained a network of friends for life.

The Champagnat Trust’s new collective fundraiser ‘Strength in Numbers’ is an opportunity for groups of Old Boys to come together to maximise the impact of their tax deductible donations, big or small.

How the Program Works

Sponsor a day boy or a boarder for their senior years at Marist College Ashgrove with the option to support them through Years 7 to 12.

Individual donors combined with 40 others, such as the ‘Class of ‘81’ will see the impact of a weekly individual donation of just $15 raise enough to cover a boarding student’s tuition for the year. Or maybe it’s the combination of the 1st XV rugby team of 1975 who could raise funds to cover a day boy’s tuition.

You can truly make a difference as an individual if you come together as a group. So grab your mates from school and give a young man the same opportunity you have had at Marist College Ashgrove.
