The Lauries Giving Program

We honour the history of Lauries with every gift we give.

2023 Annual Appeal

Plans are currently underway for the 2023 Annual Appeal. Based on the success of previous years, we will ask our community and beyond to support our two tax-deductible entities - the St Laurence's Old Boys' Foundation and the St Laurence's College Building Fund. 

Further details regarding the campaign will be launch in Term 2. Donations can still be given anytime via the links available below:

The Lauries Giving Program

St Laurence’s College has a rich history of giving, inspired by the founding brothers in 1915. 

Currently the College has charities with DGR status that members of the community and beyond can contribute to. These two entities fall under the banner of 'The Lauries Giving Program' and include the St Laurence's Old Boys' Foundation and the St Laurence's College Building Fund. Further information on both of these impactful charities can be found below.

St Laurence’s Old Boys’ Foundation

The St Laurence’s Old Boys’ Foundation was developed to assist disadvantaged and marginalised boys obtain an education at St Laurence’s. 

Since its establishment in 1988, the Old Boys’ Foundation has donated over $575,000 to the College. These funds directly assist with the educational costs of financially disadvantaged students and ensure they receive their own Lauries Journey. 

Further information is available on the Old Boys website Foundation page.

St Laurence’s Building Fund

The College Building Fund is a tax-deductible fund that provides for projected and on-going capital works in addition to the maintenance of buildings and facilities at the College.

As the College embarks on a 20 year Master Plan which will see the redevelopment of our South Brisbane campus, all funds contributed to the Building Fund will be channeled into this project. 

Commemorative opportunities also exist with members of the community invited to secure a commemorative plaque in the Chapel of St Laurence O’Toole. Honour a loved one, commemorate your son/s graduation (or your own) or preserve your family name for a $300 gift to the Building Fund. Please note, all commemorative plaques are not tax-deductible.

For further information, review the brochure.

No matter how you choose to donate, every gift makes a real difference to the lives of our students. If you have supported us in previous years, we remain sincerely grateful. If you are able to make a gift this year, we thank you deeply for your kindness and generosity.
