My Grammar

Giving @ Grammar

 

Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School including Ipswich Junior Grammar School was built on the foundation of community.

Our community now extends far beyond our 127-year-old gates, and our more than 17,000 graduates have made their mark on the world in more ways than we could have ever imagined.

To remain at the forefront of education it takes planning, change and constant improvement – always striving to build and provide more for each student who attends Ipswich Girls’ and Junior Grammar School.

Philanthropy influences the future of our school. Our capacity to plan and build for the future is enhanced when our community rallies and supports our Annual Giving Appeal. Donations significantly boost our ability to improve exceptional resources and facilities for our students.

Over the years we have undertaken many projects throughout the campus which have been made possible solely through the generous donations of our community, which has benefitted our students: past, present and future.

How can you become involved in improving the future of our school?

You can make a tax deductible donation to several areas of the School. It’s common that we receive donations for specific projects that are important to the benefactor. Perhaps you have fond memories in the Library, or perhaps you relish Speech Night or Presentation Night.


Building Fund

Provides funds for capital works projects and refurbishments. Our focus for this year is to complete a full renovation of the Senior Library and to improve outdoor play facilities for our Junior Grammar boys and girls.


Library Fund

Provides students with access to the latest literary resources. Our Libraries are a haven for many students who enjoy the quiet space to study, read and reflect.


Scholarships Fund
 

This fund maintains our ability to offer a generous scholarship and bursary program, enabling many students to attend our school who otherwise may not be able to. The fund also provides support for Speech Night and Presentation Night prizes, where our students are publicly recognised for their diligence each year.


Compassion Fund

This fund is a special one. Sometimes in life circumstances change, unfortunate events occur and it is out of our control. This fund is available for the School to provide financial relief to current families in situations of need, at the Principal’s discretion.

*Donations over $2 made to these Funds are tax deductible.

On behalf of the students, and the generations of students to come, we thank you for your support and the opportunities you enable us to provide.

Bequests
Bequests represent an investment in the future of our students and the quality of their education, whilst also being a meaningful way to recognise your connection to Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School.

A bequest is a provision in your Will, which specifically reserves part of your estate to a particular beneficiary. It offers an especially valuable contribution by providing a lasting, positive impact on the School community long into the future. It is an enduring contribution that can make a significant difference to the lives of others and create a legacy that can honour you, your family, or someone close to you, for generations to come.
