Since its establishment in 1977 by Fr Brennan SJ, the College Foundation plays a vital role in supporting various programs.
Watch this short video with a message from our College Rector Fr Chris Middleton SJ.
The Xavier College Foundation exists to financially support the future of the College. It does this by engaging with and encouraging donors to facilitate opportunities at Xavier College that may not otherwise be possible. The generous support of our community has helped to deliver an increasing number of Scholarships and Bursaries, curriculum programs and provide assistance in the building of new facilities.
“The influence Xavier has had on me has been unbelievable. Xavier has been a part of my life for a long while. One of the reasons I want to give back to the school is that I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for Xavier and the influences it’s had on me."
JOHN JOHNSTON (OX 1953) Donor and Foundation Member
John has chosen to make a Bequest to the Xavier College Foundation to give the son of an Old Xaverian from the country the same opportunity he had to attend Xavier and experience the wonderful education and opportunities this brings.
“Xavier gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams. I thank all those donors who made my Scholarship at Xavier possible.”
