Why Philanthropy Matters

We believe that the best gift you can give is the gift of an exceptional education. Toorak College prides itself on developing students with confidence and character so they can thrive in their future, but we need your help to continue striving to achieve our vision.

As an independent school on the Mornington Peninsula, we aim to produce the personal best academic results paired with future readiness. Yet, to achieve these goals, we must ensure we endorse the highest quality educators and invest in state-of-the-art facilities. There are many ways to give back, whether it’s through the gift of time, money or your expertise. Most importantly, all donations, large and small, are important to the School.

One Scholarship makes a difference

Toorak College offers scholarships for girls in order to help inspired students each their full potential. Scholarships enrich our school and support students to follow their dreams. Several Scholarships have been established through the generosity of others including the Alice Sloan Memorial Scholarship, the Christine Friday Arts & Humanities Scholarship, the Margaret Wallace Reid Scholarship and the Swift Science and Technology Scholarship.

Inspiring Spaces

With an emphasis on hiring quality staff, offering vibrant excursions and incursions, and running the campus facilities on a daily basis, philanthropic giving allows us to accelerate our development across these important pillars of our School. Gifts to the Toorak College Building Fund go towards the continual upkeep of our historic School and new projects focused on creating inspiring spaces for our current and future students.

Gifts are life changing

For nearly 150 years, Toorak College has advanced through the generosity of our benefactors. Our students are the beneficiaries of philanthropy from our current parents, Collegians, staff, past families and friends. We are exceptionally grateful to those who have given generously to provide the educational opportunities, buildings and facilities that our students currently enjoy today.
