Over the past 165 years, our graduates have shaped the world. Many of these stories would not be possible with the generosity of our community.

The impact of a donation echoes through the generations.

Amplify Our Spirit is a campaign with a bold vision to enhance the educational experience for St Vincent’s College students.

Fundraising efforts are well underway through donations to the College Foundation – more than half of our goal has been pledged to date. By joining us, you play a direct role in the story of St Vincent’s College and leave an inspirational footprint for future generations.

That future, however bright, relies on the generosity of others. With your support, we can continue to offer young woman an education of advantage, not entitlement.

This page is your home, our Campaign Hub, where information and updates about the Amplify Our Spirit journey will be posted. We hope you will join us on this exciting path.

Amplify Our Spirit is investing in the qualities that make St Vincent’s College a special place.

Expanding our Scholarships and Bursaries program ensures even more girls can benefit from a St Vincent’s College education, while ambitious new facilities, learning spaces and technology will inspire the educational experience of our students.

We are united as a community. Through generosity and connection, a legacy is built.

Vinnies Spirit

Our students treasure the College spirit they affectionately call the “Vinnies Spirit”. It’s hard to define but easy to feel: a sense of optimism, cheerfulness and good dose of quirky!

Strong spirits, courageous actions

Join a legacy of women who have inspired and empowered. Your support builds a cycle of empowerment and creates a legacy through the generations.
