Giving to Waverley College
Gifts to the College from students, families and friends (past and present) of Waverley College help fulfil our vision of liberating the potential of every learner.
Thank you to our supporters
The generosity of our donors has helped our school achieve so much more – from the Brother Robert Wallace Performing Arts Centre to the new Cosgrove Centre.
Support also continues to help fund bursaries for Waverley College families experiencing financial difficulty, as well as academic scholarships such as the George Rummery Music Scholarship which promote excellence.
Many ways to give
Annual Giving: Every Family. Any Amount. Every Year.
Each year, the College calls on the members of the Waverley College community – students and their families – past and present, to make a contribution to the College Building Fund for Scholarship Fund.
Make your donation here online.
The College also welcomes donations of goods and services, which may assist with our building programs or be used in fundraising activities. Contact our Development Office for more information if you would like to assist in this way.
Leave a bequest to Waverley College
A bequest in your will is one way to make a significant and lasting legacy to the College.
To develop innovative learning programs, provide scholarships to those who could not ordinarily afford a Waverley College education, maximise and enhance the skills of our staff and create new facilities, tuition fees alone will never meet all our needs. We rely on your support as a member of our College Community.
By leaving a bequest that includes the College in your Will, you are making a valuable contribution to ensuring Waverley’s future without affecting your present financial circumstances.
Bequests can vary in form: the remainder of an estate after providing for family and loved ones; a percentage of an estate; a fixed sum; a life insurance policy, property or shares. You can give an asset you no longer need or want. Gifts of property or shares are most welcome. Any such gifts that are allocated to either the Waverley College Building Fund or Waverley College Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.
Your bequest, no matter the form or amount, guarantees and strengthens our future.
Making or revising a Will is neither difficult nor expensive.
It is essential that you have a Will. Surprisingly, many do not. If you have already made your Will, you or your solicitor can prepare a codicil, which is a simple and inexpensive amendment. The Waverley College Development Office has a codicil form professionally drafted for this purpose.
Establish an Endowment Fund
Another option is to establish an Endowment; this is a fund named in your memory or in the memory of a loved one. The capital remains untouched in perpetuity and the interest of the fund is used for your pre-designated purpose such as a scholarship or bursary.
Take a tour of our School and see what your bequest will do
When considering a bequest, we welcome you to take a tour of the College and discuss your thoughts with the College’s Marketing and Development Manager, Jennifer Divall, who will be delighted to share with you the College’s long term plans and clarify how your bequest will ensure Waverley’s future.
Virtus Sola Society
The Virtus Sola Society has been established to honour those members of Waverley College’s Community who have confirmed their intention to include the college in their Will. Members are invited to special College events attended by the Head of College and members of the College Executive and Board. It is very important to us to show our appreciation to your commitment, so we would encourage you to advise us of your intention. Everyone who notifies us of their bequest to Waverley College is welcomed as a member into our Virtus Sola Society.
How to make a bequest
A Will is a very personal statement. We recommend that you consult with your solicitor before either writing a new Will or updating your existing one.
