How we will Fulfil our Fundraising
The St Bede’s College Foundation, the College boards and the St Bede’s College Old Boys’ Association are dedicated to restoring the Chapel of St Bede to the school.
The total cost of the project is $3.5M. The Society of Mary has donated $1M and the Board of Proprietors has contributed $1M to the project. We have raised $700,000 from Old Boys and friends of the College to date, leaving us with a total of $800,000 to secure.
To ensure this target is reached, we have built a strong fundraising taskforce of loyal Bedeans and friends to realise our goal. This group is led by the Rector Justin Boyle, and the Foundation Chair Hayden Ryan, and also includes Lisa Brennan, Patrick Methven and Noel Chambers.
Over the coming months we will place strong focus on connecting with Old Boys and friends of St Bede’s who have indicated their wish to support the project, whether individually or through a family legacy. We are confident that with a renewed focus on securing gifts using a committee of individuals committed to success, we will fulfil our target allowing us to celebrate the opening of the new Chapel in September.
