The effect of COVID and the ensuing lockdowns in 2020 and 2021 meant an unexpected reduction in revenue, and significant cost cutting. For the second year running College has taken a financial hit, like so many small businesses and not for profit organisations.
Thank you again to all donors for your continued support.
Your generosity enables St Paul’s College to not only maintain and improve our facilities but provides important support for future Paulines through our bursary programme. Your willingness to give back to your old College is greatly appreciated.
As we launch our 2021 Christmas Giving appeal, St Paul’s College looks to the future. Your generous donation will provide funds for the fit-out of our new Study Centre, or you can donate to the Foundation to assist future residents.
The Study Centre
With the growing student numbers in recent years, the community has outgrown the Mansfield Library. The new study centre will be located in the basement of the Ivan Head Building and will be servicing both the Undergraduates and Graduate House communities, providing a larger, dedicated space for learning and growth.
The Foundation and other direct donations have helped over 100 students in 2021 with scholarships and bursaries. These enable us to offer places to many gifted students who otherwise could not attend Sydney University. Many live outside Sydney and financially could not afford to reside at St Paul’s without your valuable financial assistance
To remain a world-class college we need to continue to provide the best college facilities at the University of Sydney. With our core priority in the development of a performing arts centre. Online Giving
