The St Bede’s College Foundation Incorporated is a registered Charitable Trust under The Charities Act 2005. Its primary purposes are making grants and providing finance, buildings and facilities to the College. It was originally set up by the, now, Board of Proprietors and Board of Trustees to provide financial assistance for the College and is in fact operated now by a separate Board of Trustees which is answerable to the Board of Proprietors. It was established in 1978 and it has been a significant benefactor to the College. In the period since its founding it has contributed a little over $1.8m by way of direct grants and a further $1.5m in loans to the College to assist in a range of projects.

The present day facilities owe much to the Foundation and to the various friends of the College who have given generously to enable the Foundation to build its reserves. These donations have been prudently managed and dispersed to assist a range of major capital works and minor projects.

The Foundation has lead a fund-raising campaign, with the help of Old Boys Association and the Board of Proprietors to rebuild the College Chapel which was opened in September 2019.

A Gift to Support Bedeans of The Future

A gift to St Bede’s College is a gift to creating young men of the future who serve with a Catholic heart, mind, and hands – for generations to come.
