Giving to Waverley College

Gifts to the College from students, families and friends (past and present) of Waverley College help fulfil our vision.


Thank you to our supporters

The campus would not look as it does today, had it not been for the generous and ongoing support of parents, Old Boys and the wider Waverley Community via the Foundation which will support our next project; a state-of-the-art Science & Innovation Centre. These labs will evolve the way students learn and the way teachers facilitate learning at Waverley College to align with 21st century practices. The build is due to start next year.

By supporting the Waverley College Foundation, you provide critical financial support to the school. The foundation is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of Waverley College students, and its success depends on the generosity and commitment of the community. This support 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.

In-kind Gifts

The College also welcomes donations of goods and services, which may assist with our building programs or be used in fundraising activities. Contact our Marketing & 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.

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 as per your wishes 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, we can help you with these important steps.

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 Foundation Officer 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 Principal 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.
