The important work St Paul’s College does in providing the best all-round tertiary experience was disrupted by Covid-19, but it was not thwarted. The financial support from the wider Pauline community enabled our students to probably have the best second semester in 2020 of any University students in the world. Nevertheless, we need to continue to improve the service we provide and widen access in order for more young people to benefit from the Pauline experience. We continue to depend on the generosity of our community to make this a reality. Please consider how you may be able to support St Paul’s in 2021, whether through giving to scholarships or facilities, to ensure our College thrives this year and into the future.

Between 2018 and today the number of students in residents at Paul’s has increased by 171% while the level of scholarship support to them has only increased by 115%. So, despite allocating fewer full scholarships than before, our scholarship fund cannot support the needs of the demand from more diverse potential students. Our ability to provide worthy candidates with scholarships needs your support more than ever for this critical need to be addressed.
We need to increase the space for student study, research and collaboration as well as specialist space for the performing arts. We have plans to make use of the lower ground floor space between the Ivan Head and McMillan buildings which will cost $750,000 and, very we are very excited that we already have our first pledge of $150,000 from a new donor. Please help us raise the remaining $600,000.
Lastly, College is still recovering from a $1.7 million dollar loss due to the impact of COVID-19 on our operations. The greatest thing about Annual Giving is that the funds are able to be used immediately and have fast impact. Again we are seeking support to maintain the operations of the College as we continue to recover financially from the global pandemic.
The access and attainment gap, for a place at St Paul’s, has increased with our expansion since 2018 and with the impact of COVID-19 on family incomes. Scholarships
