The Sydney Grammar School Foundation Ltd was established in 1979 and is a public company limited by guarantee. Today the Foundation is governed by the elected Trustees of the School. The various associations within the School are represented on the Fundraising Advisory Board which supports the work of the Foundation. A number of funds are managed through the Foundation all of which are tax deductible. These include the Building Fund and the Library Fund.
The vision of providing an endowment to support scholarships is as old as the School itself. In fact, it was one of the School’s founders, Dr John Woolley, who first envisaged Grammar as a fee paying school supported by an endowment which paid for scholarships. This vision is strongly supported by both the Headmaster, Dr John Vallance and the Trustees of the School.
Donors wishing to support our means-tested programme are now able to claim a tax deduction.
A few years ago, a group of Old Boys from 1948 established the Old Sydneians' Union Scholarship Fund. The aim is to raise two million dollars - the amount needed to put one means-tested scholar in each of Forms I-VI.
To help us to reach this ambitious target, we are seeking ambassadors from various year groups to assist us in our efforts. If you would like to assist, please contact the Development Office on 9332 5877. Donations are now tax deductible.

By giving in this way you can enable a talented boy, whose parents cannot afford the fees, a chance to take advantage of all that Sydney Grammar School can offer.
A bequest can take the form of:
