The Heart of the St John’s College Foundation
What it Means to Give Forever
You are part of St John’s past, present and future. By contributing to the St John’s Endowment, or creating a permanent fund within the Endowment, you have the opportunity to make a difference during your lifetime and beyond. The Endowment ensures the continuing success of St John’s College, giving the life-changing opportunity of an exceptional education to future generations. As needs, opportunities and challenges change over time, your wishes are preserved and your contribution will continue to support the College, now and forever.
There are many compelling motivations for contributing to the Endowment:
- Ensuring educational excellence: Your contribution will actively support the school’s commitment to educational excellence. Your donation helps to provide a stable and reliable source of funding for various educational programmes, scholarships, faculty development, and infrastructure improvements. This, in turn, enhances the quality of education provided by the school and creates an environment conducive to learning and growth.
- Long-term impact: Endowment funds are designed to last in perpetuity, generating income that can be used to support the school’s initiatives indefinitely. By contributing to the Endowment, you are making a lasting impact on the school and its ability to fulfil its mission, even beyond your lifetime. Your donation becomes part of a legacy that positively influences future generations of students, faculty, and the wider community.
- Financial stability: The Endowment provides financial stability to the school by generating a steady stream of income. This stability allows the school to plan for the future, withstand economic uncertainties, and invest in strategic initiatives that enhance the educational experience. By contributing to the endowment, you are helping to create a strong financial foundation that ensures the school’s long-term viability and success.
- Increasing access and opportunities: Endowment funds can be directed towards scholarships, bursaries, and other forms of financial aid, making education more accessible to deserving students who may not have the means to afford it otherwise. Your contribution to the Endowment helps to create opportunities for talented and motivated individuals who can benefit from a St John’s education, regardless of their financial circumstances.
- Inspiring others to give: Your contribution can serve as a powerful example to others in the community. It can inspire fellow Old Johannians, parents, and supporters to contribute as well, creating a culture of giving that further strengthens the school’s resources and impact. Your generosity can have a ripple effect, mobilising others to join in and support the school’s mission.
Contributing to the St John’s College is a powerful way to make a long-term and sustainable impact. The Endowment funds are designed to provide ongoing financial support for the school, ensuring that it continues to thrive and provide excellent educational opportunities for generations to come.
