St Margaret's Giving Day 2024

On Wednesday 22 May, we will host our fifth annual Giving Day, and your donation to St Margaret’s Foundation will give every girl every opportunity to grow.

Your donation to St Margaret's Foundation Building Fund will support the restoration of Community House, OR alternatively, a donation to the Scholarship Fund will help provide the gift of education through financial needs-based bursaries.

This year, a donation to the Building Fund will support the restoration of Community House – a beautiful heritage listed building on our Ascot Campus – the very first building the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent (SSA) purchased for what would become one of Queensland’s leading schools. It is from these foundations that St Margaret’s flourished; sadly, however, this grand building has been underutilized since 2016. Appropriately, once restored, Community House will become a student wellbeing centre for our students; a faithful application of the Sisters’ philosophy to educate and care for the whole child. The building will house the school psychologists and chaplain and become the centre of many student wellbeing activities. In addition, a dedicated space will honour the legacy of the SSA.

Giving Day will also raise funds for the Foundation’s bursary program. A donation to our Scholarship Fund will provide needs-based bursaries to support young women to access or complete a St Margaret’s education – an opportunity that some girls believed would never be possible.

This Giving Day, please help us restore this grand home – our home, the heart of St Margaret’s – through a donation to the Building Fund or give a girl the gift of a St Margaret’s education through supporting our financial needs-based bursaries with a donation to the Scholarship Fund.

Please join with us and the St Margaret’s community on Giving Day and give from the heart so that every girl has every opportunity to grow.
