Since 1987, with the generous support of the school community, the Foundation has been able to support a huge range and variety of projects at St Mary's, from major capital development projects to sponsoring a music tour and the five yearly Bishop Riley Memorial Lecture. In addition, since 1996, the Foundation has provided  the Old Girls’ Association Life Membership fee for each Year 12 graduate.

We are grateful to everyone who has made a gift to support St Mary’s. Every gift makes a difference to the education we can offer our students. We are proud to acknowledge and honour our donors' generosity with plaques recording the names of those who have given placed around the school and scholarships and prizes named in the donor’s honour.

In 2012 St Mary's Anglican Girls' School Foundation celebrated its 25th anniversary and a history of the Foundation's work to date, 25 Years of Securing the Future of Our School, was published.

The Lady Wardle Performing Arts Centre

The Foundation's first major capital development funding of $1 million was made in 1999. Together with a significant donation from Sir Thomas and Lady Wardle and gifts from the schoool community, the school's long held ambition to build a Performing Arts Centre was finally realised. Since then the Centre has hosted a wonderful array of school events, including plays, concerts, debates, dance, assemblies and lectures.
