SACS Foundation

A Message from the Chairman

The SACS Foundation is the organisation through which financial support for our school is directed. The objective of our Foundation is to anticipate and provide for the funding needs of our students, now and in the future, which is over and above what is provided by school fees and government grants.

We recognise the necessity to plan and provide for the school’s future and ensure it remains a leader in education.

St Andrew’s Cathedral School is truly a school with a heart. The generosity of the school community and the broader community has been pivotal to its development. We have been blessed by the generosity of others to help build the school that we see today.

We encourage you to contribute to the Foundation.Help build on the strong educational foundations of our school and donate here.

Annual Giving

Annual Giving focuses on key projects that will improve student facilities and initiatives beyond what can be met with tuition fee income. Parents and supporters of the SACS Community are requested to consider SACS as part of their End of Financial Year Giving. Donations could be towards Gawura, the Building Fund, or the Heath Bursary Fund. Annual Giving forms the foundation for fundraising each year.

Making a gift

Gifts can transform our school. They are tax deductible and may be spread over several years. If you are interested in finding out how you can support SACS in a significant way, please contact Lyn Jarvis. We would be delighted to share more extensively with you our plans for the future and discuss with you how your philanthropic gift can support the school. You could choose to make your gift to the Building Fund, Gawura, or the Heath Bursary Fund. All donations have a significant impact on the lives of students.


St Andrew’s and Gawura are truly grateful to those whose vision and consideration through bequests, enables future generations of students at our schools to benefit from their generosity. A bequest is a gift that is contained within a will and specifically reserves part of an estate for a particular beneficiary. It can be directed to a specific purpose, or left to the Head of School’s discretion. Either way you can be asured your bequest will benefit SACS or Gawura tomorrow, just as you intend it to today. Your bequest can be modified at any time to reflect changes in your circumstances, and your assests remain in your control during your lifetime. If you would like to discuss making a bequest to either St Andrew’s Cathedral School or Gawura, please contact Lyn Jarvis.

Voluntary donation to Building Fund with school fees

The ongoing renewal of facilities cannot be achieved by school fees and government funding alone.  It is achieved largely through donations. The difference that you make by giving a tax-deductible contribution when you pay your fees is truly significant. These donations play a pivotal role in improving key facilities and supporting our students to be the best they can be. In 2019, we ask K – Year 11 families to contribute $175 per term and Year 12 families to contribute $233 (for three terms only) with their fees to support ongoing building projects.

Tax-deductible donations to sport at SACS

St Andrew’s Cathedral School Foundation is delighted to be a member of the Australian Sports Foundation. This allows members of the community and supporters of sport at our school to make a tax-deductible donation. The SACS Sports Foundation has been formed to raise funds to promote the development of sport across all sports, all grades and for all students at St Andrew’s Cathedral School.
