BRISBANE GRAMMAR SCHOOL
"Built on Giving"
For more than 150 years, Brisbane Grammar School has been built on giving.
Old Boys, parents and friends of the School have helped us build libraries and laboratories, sporting fields and swimming pools, campsites and classrooms, boarding houses and bursary funds.
On Thursday 25 August 2022, we’re hosting our second annual Giving Day to celebrate the past and prepare for the future.
We are calling on the BGS community to support needs-based bursaries and the construction of our bold new STEAM Precinct, which will integrate the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.
Your support for our Building and Bursary Funds will help change the lives of aspirational boys and allow us to deliver world class educational outcomes for generations to come.

Donate to Bursary Fund
The BGS Bursary Fund was established to build a bursary endowment in perpetuity. With the principal invested and preserved, the income generated is used to give access to BGS students on a needs basis. It is the School's vision to support 10% of the cohort, or approximately 180 students.
As of December 2021, the fund stands at approximately $19M and is currently supporting 35 students. Support varies from 25% to 100% fee assistance for both day and boarding students. Financial need is objectively assessed by an external provider, EdStart, which includes recommendations of the level of assistance per applicant (25% to 100%).
The fund is currently invested with QIC in a long-term diversified fund. The Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees has oversight of the management of the fund and approves the amount the fund distributes to support students each financial year.
Donate to STEAM Project
The STEAM Precinct is expected to open mid-2023. It will be a physical extension of Brisbane Grammar School’s educational philosophy to develop critical, reflective and creative thinkers with the capacity and enthusiasm for independent, lifelong learning.
The School thinks critically before asking for the support of the community. The STEAM Precinct is projected to cost $70 million, funded partly by reserves ($20 million) and borrowings ($40 million) with $10 million a logical fundraising target.
With one year to go we have fundraised $7 million. We are humbled by this outstanding result and we hope the community can help us achieve our target.
