Annual Giving provides an opportunity for every member of the St Mary’s community to philanthropically support the School, helping to provide an exceptional education for the girls.
Your support helps us to realise more projects more quickly than can be achieved from the School’s recurrent budget. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a difference to every St Mary’s girl.
JUST IMAGINE WHAT YOUR GIFTS WILL MAKE POSSIBLE IN 2020 AND BEYOND.
The key to the growing success of St Mary’s Annual Giving is participation. Our goal is to see every member of our community participate in whatever way they are able.
All gifts over $2 to the Scholarship Fund, Building Fund and Library Fund are tax deductible. To receive a 2019/20 tax receipt, please make your gift before 30 June 2020.
2020 ANNUAL GIVING
Transforming lives through Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of donors since 2014, the needs-based Annual Giving Scholarship provides the gift of a St Mary’s education to talented girls who would not otherwise be able to attend our School without financial assistance.
It is our ambition to be able to support one new needs-based scholarship recipient every year for the duration of her schooling.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN OFFER MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO DESERVING GIRLS.
“Being awarded a Scholarship at St Mary’s was life-changing for me. At St Mary’s I had the opportunity to give everything a go, but mostly, I loved being part of the St Mary’s community. The teachers really cared about my education and they made all the difference to me. There is no question that the love of learning I developed at St Mary’s inspired me to become a teacher.”

Instilling a lifelong love of learning
St Mary's libraries are spaces for discovery, imagination and inspiration. They are at the centre of our thriving learning environment and gifts to our Library Fund ensure that girls are encouraged to develop a lifelong love of learning.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN ENSURE THAT OUR GIRLS HAVE KNOWLEDGE AT THEIR FINGERTIPS AND ARE PREPARED FOR LIFE BEYOND ST MARY’S.
Create Inspiring Learning Environments
The ongoing development of our facilities and spaces ensures our girls can benefit from the best environment for inspired teaching and learning. The St Mary's Masterplan 2019-2030 sets out an extensive program of capital works to ensure the School offers innovative learning spaces that encourage increased collaboration, creativity and connectivity. This staged infrastructure development will be the largest and most ambitious undertaken by St Mary's since the School moved from West Perth to Karrinyup some fifty years ago. Please view the St Mary’s Masterplan 2019-2030 which provides an overview of our exciting vision.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT WE CAN ENSURE THAT OUR CAMPUS HAS FUTURE-FACING TEACHING AND LEARNING SPACES.
Your support will help us to encourage, challenge, grow and empower St Mary’s girls so we can offer them the very best educational opportunities.
Thank you for your generosity.
