Foundation Operations

Operations

The Foundation is operated separately from The Scots College and is governed by three Deeds of Trust (Building, Scholarship and Education). The Foundation Board of Management is responsible for all decisions related to the operation of the Foundation including fundraising, investments and allocation of funds to the College. The Board is formed by election from Foundation Members.

Deeds of Trust

Scholarship Trust - to provide a fund for scholarships and bursaries for boys whose presence will add to the richness and diversity of the student body but whose family financial situations would otherwise prevent them from attending the College.

Building Trust - to provide a fund for ongoing capital works projects and acquisitions in support of the College Master Plan and to ensure world-class facilities.

Education Trust - to provide a fund for grants to the College to enhance the educational environment at the College.

Donations to the Foundation's Building Fund and Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.
