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.

This year has been a challenging time for many families, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has become prevalent in our community. Many families have struggled with job loss as a result which has impacted on their ability to pay their fees.

Families of the College that have not been affected have reached out to us to see how they can help those less fortunate and have subsequently made donations through the Champagnat Trust.

These donations have enabled the Champagnat Trust to assist eight families with their school fees and we are seeking to support 20 more families.

We would like to ask that if you are in the fortunate position to support other families during this time we would be grateful if you would consider a tax-deductible donation to the Champagnat Trust.

This can be a one-off donation, a monthly or a per term donation.

Any support you can provide during this time is greatly appreciated and will be a welcome relief to many Marist College students and their families.

For further information or to donate now please contact our foundation officer via mcafoundation@marash.qld.edu.au


‘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.
