Scotch College Foundation

Assuring success and financial transparency

Philanthropy enabled the establishment of Scotch College in 1919 as a memorial to the Sons of Scotland. 

The Scotch College Foundation was established in 1988 to continue this tradition and on the premise that while tuition fees may cover the costs of a Scotch education, achieving the College’s broader educational aspirations, requires a spirit of community giving.

The Foundation's first project was the development of the Multi-Purpose Hall on the Mitcham Campus in the 1990s and since then, through its Building Fund, the Foundation has helped raise over $8 million towards building projects such as the Webb Science Centre and the Rosevear Boarding Precinct.

Through its Education Fund, the Foundation also helps fund a number of student scholarships to Scotch College Adelaide, to enable meritorious and deserving young people to benefit from a Scotch education.

 

Scholarship Endowment Fund 

The Scholarship Endowment Fund was established in 2016 to increase opportunities for young people to access a Scotch education and to increase diversity in the College community. The Fund was constituted so the principal, currently $5million and growing, will never be spent. A portion of the income generated each year is provided to the College to fund Scholarship commitments. Contributions have tolled over $150,000 since inception and forecast to increase rapidly as the principal increases. Any earnings not allocated are also reinvested, increasing the principal base, consolidating the ability to grow scholarship contributions over time.
