Giving at
St Bede’s

A gift to support Bedeans for the future

A gift to St Bede’s College is a gift to creating young men of the future who serve with a Catholic heart and mind – for generations to come. Be a part of the St Bede’s legacy and help us raise $20 million over 20 years to support the following projects. 

Endowment fund

The Endowment Fund represents a lasting investment in the future of St Bede’s. Contributions to this fund are carefully invested to generate returns that sustain our mission. Our aim is to reach $10 million within the next decade, ensuring a stable, perpetual source of support for the school. With each donation, our generous supporters become partners in providing education to St Bede’s students for generations to come.

Proceeds from the Endowment Fund will be utilised by St Bede’s in a manner that maximises benefit for the college community. This could involve funding new facilities, nurturing our Catholic special character, or providing assistance to our students and their families during challenging times.

Capital Development

Exciting plans are in motion for the creation of a cutting-edge Science and Technology Precinct at St Bede’s. 

As we continuously seek to enhance our facilities to meet the evolving educational requirements of our students and strategically plan for the future, this initiative represents a pivotal step forward.

While we are currently in the final stages of planning this project, contributions are welcomed. As the plans take shape, we will share updates with our community.

Our goal is to raise $10 million for the capital development of St Bede’s over the next 10 years, ensuring our facilities remain at the forefront of innovation and excellence.

Naming rights and recognition opportunities are available. To discuss, please contact our Director of Advancement, Clare Wilkinson, for further information by emailing foundation@stbedes.school.nz

Scholarships

The St Bede’s Scholarship Fund is a vital collective resource dedicated to fostering both excellence and inclusivity. Scholarships awarded from this fund recognise academic achievement while also ensuring access to a Catholic education for boys whose families are facing financial constraints.

Contributions to the St Bede’s Scholarships Fund, along with all investment returns, are managed by the St Bede’s College Foundation. Scholarships are subsequently granted at the discretion of the Rector, utilising the income generated by this fund.

Named scholarships represent a lasting legacy, awarded in your family name, in perpetuity. The establishment of a named scholarship begins with a significant donation of $120,000 or above. This contribution is then strategically invested by the Foundation, with the resulting returns funding the annual scholarship grant, ensuring sustained coverage of school fees over time.

Our Current College Needs

We understand that many people want to see their funds benefitting the current students of today, so we have set up a fund that will do just that.

Our focus for our current students is to provide a quality Catholic education with academic, sporting, and cultural opportunities that cater to the holistic needs of each individual in safe environment.
