Moreton Bay College and its wonderful facilities have been established through the financial generosity and efforts of many dedicated supporters since our foundation in 1901. To ensure the continued growth and development of The College it is necessary for us to secure financial support over and above our current fee structure. You can lend your financial support by making a fully tax deductible donation to one of the following giving programs.
ANNUAL GIVING APPEAL
Each year, prior to the end of the financial year, we contact the College community to invite them to make a donation to the Annual Giving Appeal. Our Annual Giving Appeal raises funds for priorities identified in our facilities master plan. A pledge can be made over a number of years and is tax deductible in the year the funds are paid.
At the time of paying school fees, parents have the opportunity to make a donation to the Building Fund. Donations to this fund assist with the maintenance of current buildings and facilities. The suggested amount for the Voluntary Building Fund is $150 each term.
From time to time the College conducts Capital Appeals to assist with funding major building projects. In 2013 the College undertook a Capital Appeal to raise funds to assist with the construction of a $6 million Science Centre. In most instances, donations to the Capital Appeal are fully tax deductible and donors can choose to receive recognition on a donor honour board.
The Moreton Bay College Quentin Bryce Foundation Bursary aims to provide girls from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, but having significant academic potential, the opportunity of an education at MBC in the high school years. The cost of the bursaries is met from funds donated to the College Scholarship Fund, established for that purpose. The aim of the Fund itself is to ensure the College can fully fund places for these girls without financially compromising the high level of service offered to all families of the College.
