The Development Office is seen as an important link between the College and its wider community of Alumni, Parents & Friends.
The College today is the result of over 135 years of philanthropy from OLs, parents, former parents, former staff and Friends of St Lawrence. The Development Office serves to continue that tradition of giving so that the St. Lawrence of the next 135 years will continue to provide the very best education it can to all our pupils.
AIMS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OFFICE
- To encourage and nurture the relationship, interest and support of OLs, parents, pupils and friends of the St Lawrence community.
- To maintain and strengthen the tradition of benefaction that has sustained and enriched this College since its establishment in 1879.
The Development Office has also been set up to assist the school through fundraising to achieve what has been set out in its development plan. The aim is to continue to provide the very best in terms of education and facilities while extending the ability to provide a Lawrentian education to students who would benefit from the school, but whose families would not have the means to fund a place at the school. The school reinvests all of its money back into the education of its students; if the school is to remain at the top of parental choices for their children then your assistance would be much appreciated.
We expect to achieve this through arranging various events, seeking funding for bursaries and capital projects and gathering long term financial support through legacies and planned giving.
The Development Office is to become the administrative centre for the St Lawrence College Foundation (a fund set up to receive donations), the 1879 Legacy Society and the Old Lawrentian Society. It will also work closely with The Friends of St Lawrence College (current and former parents) and the Junior School Parents Association.
