Foundation

The Westminster School Foundation is a charitable organisation established in 1987. It encourages philanthropy, coordinates fundraising and manages investments to support Westminster School. The Foundation has three funds reflecting its main areas of interest:

  • the Education Fund, in support of Scholarships
  • the Building Fund, in support of School building programs
  • the Library Fund, for Library learning resources  

We invite and encourage old scholars, current families and other members of the Westminster community to support our work which helps the School to continually advance and undertake worthwhile programs for the benefit of our students. 

See what the Foundation has been up to lately in the latest issue of Foundation News.
