Annual Appeal

Annual Appeal Giving

Boys have a better learning experience and their lives are enhanced by every gift, large or small. Gifts to scholarships, inspiring programmes of excellence or important school projects make it possible for us to offer an inspiring and exceptional education to our boys.

To thrive in a rapidly evolving, technology – driven world, students need strong skills in areas such as language, arts, mathematics and science, as well as critical thinking, problem solving, persistence, collaboration and curiosity. Your gift is so important and can provide that amazing mind opening experience. Please help to inspire the boys for our future by joining us and making a gift today.

Inspiring boys through scholarships

Scholarships attract inspirational students of merit from all walks of life who may not otherwise have had the opportunity of a Christ’s College education. Over 130 of the 603 boys attending College receive some form of financial assistance. For each of those boys—and their families—that support is invaluable. In many cases, the difference between attending College or not.

Inspiring programmes of excellence

Gifts can be allocated to art, music, sport, teaching and learning, inspirational international guest speakers and other programmes of excellence. Or if you would like to leave it to us to decide where your gift is used, it can go towards important projects and development opportunities, academic and co-curricular programmes. By directing your gift towards these programmes you will enhance College’s capability for innovative teaching and curriculum development, or your gift can be used by teachers who need support for projects and resources which are outside of College means. In 2015 for example; teachers used donations from the 2015 Annual Appeal to transform a previous dark room into a new digital studio; worked with Canterbury University to build kitset rockets for research and study; and purchased a Sports Body alignment machine used by coaches to support safety and technique in sport.
