The Foundation

The St Bede’s College Foundation Incorporated is a registered Charitable Trust under The Charities Act 2005. Its primary purposes are making grants and providing finance, buildings and facilities to the College. It was originally set up by the, now, Board of Proprietors and Board of Trustees to provide financial assistance for the College and is in fact operated now by a separate Board of Trustees which is answerable to the Board of Proprietors.
