Give the gift of a BGS education

Together, we can provide boys with life-changing opportunities.

In 2012, 65 Old Boys banded together to support an earlier iteration of the Year Group Bursary initiative where donated funds were drawn upon rather than invested.

Thank you to supportors of the initial 1966 Year Group Bursary

Current Year Group Bursary Program

Since 2017, donations to Year Group Bursaries have been invested in the BGS Bursary Fund, which operates as an endowment fund, with invested capital maintained in perpetuity. Interest generated by the capital investment is utilised in accordance with DGR guidelines and drawn upon to offer needs-based bursaries.

Year Group Bursary Program

Your gift will help us offer some form of needs-based bursarial support to up to 10% of the student population (eventually 170 boys). 

Pay it forward - pass on the privilege and opportunity of a BGS education to another boy.

*All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference and are tax-deductible.
