The Wesley College Foundation

Building on a great tradition of giving

Since its establishment in 1866, Wesley College has relied on the generosity of its donors and benefactors-alumni, parents past parents and community friends - to enhance its facilities, develop its academic programs, fund the rich diversity of cocurricular and sporting activities, and increase the number of scholarships on offer.

The Wesley College Foundation was established in 1978 and is the vehicle that raises funds to assist the College with so much of its vital work that directly benefits every Wesley student. It seeks to inspire financial support through a comprehensive philanthropic program that includes raising funds for: buildings and facilities, scholarships, library, sport, the performing and visual arts, Yiramalay and The Wesley College Institute. It also promotes bequests through The Sapere Aude Bequest Society.
