This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of Christian College Geelong and in addition we celebrate the 1st birthday of the Christian College Foundation.
In establishing the Foundation, we stated our goal was to provide a funding source, independent of student fees, which was to be used to support students from families with disadvantaged backgrounds, those experiencing particular hardship and to fund new initiatives, locally and globally, to enhance the educational program of our students. Our aim also included the long term viability of the College in these ever changing times.
Over the past 12 months we have appointed a Foundation Board, comprising a group of passionate people with diverse skills, talents and backgrounds. We have carried out all legal requirements and in doing so are thrilled to report that we have been granted full tax deductibility for all donations made to the Foundation.
To coincide with our anniversary we are pleased to announce our 1st major project called the `Community Access Scholarship`. Details of the initiative will be outlined at our upcoming Foundation Dinner celebration and associated College correspondence.
Tickets will be on sale in the upcoming weeks.
We look forward to you joining with us and partnering this wonderful program both now and into the future.
Michael Peck and the Christian College Foundation Board.
