Since Brisbane Grammar School's foundation in 1868, the School has developed and inspired generations of well-rounded boys who have succeeded at home and abroad.
From our early beginnings, it was through the generosity of our community that BGS derived the ability to provide an outstanding education for boys. This tradition of
generosity continues to this day thanks to our community of parents, Old Boys, staff, volunteers and donors.
Over the past few years, the BGS community has rallied together to support Campaign 2020, with the goal to raise $20M by 2020 for our Bursary Fund, which enables boys in financial need to attend Brisbane Grammar School.
Our aspirations for a sustainable Bursary Fund, with the capacity to provide needs-based bursarial support for 10% of the student population (170 boys), is close to being achieved. With $14.5M raised, we are moving into the final phase of this campaign – Our 2020 Vision – with $5.5M to go.
In 2018, BGS provided bursarial assistance for 44 boys without having to draw on either the School’s operational budget or the capital of the fund. The entire community supported this endeavour, with contributions from parents, Old Boys and staff vital to the continued growth of the fund.
The School extends a heartfelt thanks to the P&F Auxiliary for their generous ongoing support, pledging $500,000 for a bursary in perpetuity, and to our 332 parent and Old Boy donors who continue to support BGS initiatives.
Gifts from our community to the Bursary Fund support the Brisbane Grammar School of today while leaving a legacy for future generations – the gift of education.
