Inspired by the charism of Edmund Rice the St Edmund’s College Foundation (the Foundation) was established to give financial assistance to marginalised or disadvantaged families so that the cost of educating their sons would be alleviated.

Since its inception in 1988 the Foundation has supported the education of over 100 young men at St Edmund’s College in Canberra.

Your donation to the Foundation will enable families in need of help in educating their sons leaving a lasting legacy that will benefit current students as well as students for generations to come.

The Foundation’s aim is to support families:

  • Who are experiencing financial barriers that may limit their ability to provide an Edmund Rice Education for their sons.
  • Provide appropriate fee relief to ensure the boys have the quality education that they deserve.
  • At times tragedy may affect families and during these times of crisis, the Foundation will look to offer support where possible so students are able continue their education at St Edmund’s College without disruption.

Donations of $2 or more to the St Edmund’s College Foundation are tax deductible in Australia.
