and Giving

Only in your gift realised and returned are we made fully free. Mary Ward

Loreto Kirribilli’s vibrant and generous donor community is part of what makes our school so special and renowned as being a ‘school of spirit’.
The profound impact of giving made by parents, grandparents, ex-students, and other friends in our community is felt by every child, every day. Through event opportunities and engagement of families, we continue to reach out to donors and celebrate their giving to Loreto Kirribilli.
Our families continue to ‘gift’ each year, supporting the School’s important mission and setting a meaningful example of community spirit, gratitude and giving back. Gifts at any level are needed and appreciated. It is the act of participating in giving every year that matters.
Thank you for considering a philanthropic gift to Loreto Kirribilli.

The tax-deductible Loreto Kirribilli Bursary Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to offer a means-tested Loreto Kirribilli Bursary to at least two students for their education from Years 10-12. The bursary allows girls to complete their Senior School education in the tradition of the Loreto Sisters, and graduate from the school as proud Loreto women, with the opportunity and inspiration to make a significant contribution to society.

All donations, small or large, are valued and appreciated, and will have an ongoing impact. The greatest gift of all is education.

The Loreto Kirribilli Bursary Fund is proudly supported by the Ex-Students’ Union and our parents and friends

The tax-deductible Green Fund

Loreto Kirribilli is deeply committed to sustainability in its operations, school culture and curriculum. We have developed an award-winning Environmental Sustainability Strategic Framework to take the School into a cleaner, more efficient, more biodiverse and more responsible 2030. The School's response to environmental sustainability is also driven by Pope Frances' environmental encyclical Laudato Si' - On Care for our Common Home which calls for urgent action to protect our beautiful planet.

In fostering a sustainable school and educating students to 'care for our common home' we have prioritised the material topics of energy efficiency, carbon management, biodiversity, climate risk, transport, waste management construction, refurbishment and education. Our immediate goal of the purchase of additional solar panels will benefit thousands of students over several generations by reducing our carbon footprint, with the aim of achieving net-zero emissions by 2030. Your donation to the tax-deductible Green Fund will help us realise this goal.

The tax-deductible Loreto Kirribilli Building Fund

Loreto Kirribilli relies on our entire community to support growth, new capital projects, major renewal, and restoration of existing buildings. In order to keep up with the constant demands and the rapid changes associated with curriculum-driven improvements, we need and value your support. The generosity of families across the school over the years has resulted in excellent facilities, maintained to the highest standards for the benefit of students and staff.

We invite our community to join families of yesteryear to embrace our philanthropic Building Fund and say - “We built that building. We built that community.”

The inclusion of Loreto Kirribilli in your Will is a lasting and wonderful way to contribute to the ongoing legacy of Mary Ward, and to maintain your link with the educational philosophy of the Loreto Sisters.

Loreto Kirribilli’s excellence today is due in no small part to the generosity of past generations and we urge you to consider this option for the benefit of future students at Loreto, just as the Heaton family did, by generously helping with the purchase of Elamang in 1907.

Many other individuals and families since have assisted in this way, contributing to the acquisition of land and the development of buildings that make Loreto the excellent centre of learning it is today.
