Currently the Foundation Chairman is a past parent ,Ian Ritchie and the Foundation Patron is former College Principal John O’Brien.

Foundation Companions

An eclectic and valued group of Old Boys, past and current parents and friends of the College have been invited to the role of a Foundation Companion. They all have an affection and a strong connection to the College and share a passion and enthusiasm for our future and wellbeing. Companions are ambassadors of the College and help ensure we thrive, as well as securing the future of our boy’s education, whilst they embody the Augustinian spirit.

Make a Gift 

Every gift is valued and vital to the College Foundation, no matter how big or small. Giving is a legacy, providing the opportunity of an enriched St Augustine’s College education for all.

Gifts and donations are sought to raise funds to support a variety of building and capital projects and for the provision of means-tested bursaries. Bursaries are provided to assist those families who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend St Augustine’s College and is at the heart of an Augustinian education.

The Foundation will continue to seek philanthropic support for the ongoing development of the College for the benefit of all our students, both current and future. Gifts of all sizes and amounts can be pledged over several years or given as a single gift. All gifts are gratefully received and acknowledged.
