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.
