The King's School Foundation Governance

A Unique Partnership

The King’s School Foundation leads philanthropic activities for the School and is responsible for ensuring that each gift is endowed effectively and as intended by our benefactors. 

The King’s School is an innovative and dynamic school that reflects modern Australia. Our experience and traditions are inspired by our values, which sustain our unique culture. 

The Foundation exists to advance the School’s reputation, capacity and position as a leading Australian school and to encourage a school-wide culture of philanthropy. 

Your support will ensure this tradition of transforming young people’s lives will continue in the century ahead.   

The School Council and the Headmaster are responsible for the direction and administration of the School. They rely on partnerships with the School community and Old Boys to realise their vision. The King’s School Foundation, together with the Development Office, is the body through which the School’s philanthropic initiatives are advanced.  

It is critical for the Foundation to attract philanthropic support from our alumni, past and current parents, the wider community, business and external organisations predisposed to our strategic goals and vision. This will reduce our dependence on government funding and fee increases, enhance our capacity to compete on the world stage and sustain our distinctive culture well into the future.

The School, Old Boys’ Union and Foundation work as a triumvirate, in a spirit of collaboration and contribution, to support the School’s mission.
