Bequests

 

'We haven’t arrived here by chance ...the School we are today is the result of the hard work and generosity of our forebears.'

 

You can be a champion of Independent education

Gippsland Grammar has been part of the fabric of Gippsland, in one guise or another, since the Church of England Girls’ School was founded in 1924. Through global economic cycles of boom and bust, World Wars and the digital revolution, Gippsland Grammar has continued to grow and evolve to become the leading provider of quality, Independent education that it is today.

 

We haven’t arrived here by chance. The School we are today is the result of the hard work and generosity of our forebears.

 

If we are to continue to grow and maintain best practise in Independent education, we need the active support of education champions—members of the Gippsland Grammar community, who understand the value of Independent education, and the broader socio-economic role that a strong Independent School plays in the community.

 

Empowering passionate people to make a difference.

Your gift is an opportunity for you to help shape the future of Gippsland Grammar; and it is an opportunity for Gippsland Grammar to recognise and honour the lasting contribution that you have made to your School and the broader Gippsland community.

 

Our Development Officer would be delighted to speak with you to discuss your wishes. The scope and impact of your gift is only limited by your imagination.

Planning ahead ensures that we can work together to create a lasting legacy, with appropriate levels of recognition for you and your family—now and in the future.

 

Our Marketing and Development Manager, Melissa Farley, can be contacted on 5143 6315 for an obligation free discussion about your wishes.
