The Lauries Giving Program

We honour the history of Lauries with every gift we give.

2020 Annual Appeal

2020 is shaping to be a year like no other. As members of the global community, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this unprecedented time.

For a number of years, the Annual Appeal has provided an opportunity for members of our community to help students through either gifts to building and infrastructure or educational costs. 

This year, out of respect to the current climate, the Annual Appeal will silently continue without fanfare or acknowledgement. It is our way of staying true to the mission to help those in need while still recognising the hardships currently being experienced around the world. 

All funds received will be contributed to the Old Boys' Foundation. In doing so, we can ensure all donations assist families in financial hardship continue to send their sons to St Laurence's College now and into the future.

Today and forever, we stand in solidarity with our community. On behalf of the staff and students of St Laurence's College, thank you to everyone how has donated or may still - it is your beacon of light that will guide us during these trying times.

The Lauries Giving Program

St Laurence’s College has a rich history of giving, inspired by the founding brothers in 1915. 

The Lauries Giving Program offers an avenue for all members of the community and beyond to give their best gift to either people or property.  

This includes gifts towards student’s educational costs (via the St Laurence’s Old Boys’ Foundation) or buildings and infrastructure (via the St Laurence’s College Building Fund). 

Both organisations provide an avenue for tax-deductible gifts to be directly gifted towards projects of purpose, impact and importance.

St Laurence’s Old Boys’ Foundation

The St Laurence’s Old Boys’ Foundation was developed to assist disadvantaged and marginalised boys obtain an education at St Laurence’s. 

Since its establishment in 1988, the Old Boys’ Foundation has donated over $424,000 to the College.

The College Building Fund is a tax-deductible fund that provides for projected and on-going capital works in addition to the maintenance of buildings and facilities at the College.

St Laurence’s College is also offering the opportunity to make a Legacy gift of a commemorative plaque in the Chapel of St Laurence O’Toole. Honour a loved one, commemorate your son/s graduation (or your own) or preserve your family name for a $300 gift to the Building Fund.
