Invest in our students’ futures

The passion and commitment of our donors and community has helped shape Cornish into the wonderful school it is today.

By giving to Cornish College, you are contributing to and sharing in the future successes of our students and strengthening the educational experiences and opportunities we offer today and into the future.

Our culture of giving is defined by gifts and care from many sources and in many forms—some are time, some are expertise, some are donations. They represent our belief that education is the greatest gift you can give.  We honour every volunteer, donor, partner, and community member and are grateful for every gift of every form and every size, knowing that all will make an impact on the lives of current and future students.

By investing in their potential today you will ensure that Cornish College graduates ‘make a difference and be the difference’ in their local, national and international communities tomorrow.

The impact of giving

From the earliest days of the College, the Cornish community has always been incredibly generous in supporting our school – whether it be through involvement in the Parents Association, serving on the College Board and its committees, assisting with class activities or supporting our Building Fund, Scholarship Fund and Giving Day campaigns with a financial commitment.

All those who ‘give’ to Cornish are motivated by a deep and genuine connection to our wonderful school and we applaud their selfless contribution – one and all.

How to give

We are deeply grateful for all levels of support, so please give in a way that suits you. Giving is a very personal choice and all gift amounts will remain confidential.
