Why give?

Like many independent schools and tertiary institutions across Australia, the College establishes financial funds through philanthropic gifting. These funds help Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview to progress at a rate not otherwise possible from school fees alone.

Why we exist

The Foundation exists to raise money to fund needs-based bursaries to educate students who would not typically be able to attend the school. In addition, the Foundation raises capital to build the necessary learning environments to accommodate and educate the College’s current and future students.
