Membership Levels

The Foundation greatly appreciates all financial contributions, no matter the size!

We understand that your commitment to giving can change year on year and we provide a number of options to provide flexibility, including pledges and bequests.

Foundation Membership is bestowed upon individuals or companies who commit to the following donation, pledge or bequest levels and is progressive:

Membership LevelDonation or Pledge TotalBequest OptionTimeframe*

Benefactor$5,000 - $10,000$10,000+Within 5 years

Benefactor$10,000 - $20,000N/AWithin 15 Years

* Timeframe is not applicable for bequests.

Member Benefits

  • Public recognition (optional) through various Foundation communication initiatives including, but not limited to, the Foundation website
  • Invitation to the Annual Founders and Benefactors Celebration
  • Invitation to the Annual Awardees and Donors Cocktail Party
  • Invitation to Annual General Meeting (Oct/Nov)
  • Invitation to adhoc Foundation and/or College events


Membership can be attained not only by the actual donation of funds, but also upon the pledge of funds within the five-year period necessary to achieve the relevant Membership Level (subject, of course, to the subsequent receipt of those funds).


Individual membership is also available through the bequest of funds. Bequest levels are double the donation or pledge total, as listed above. For example, it is possible for an individual to become a governor by including in their Will a bequest of $20,000 or more.

Tax Benefits

St John’s College Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission and donations to it are fully tax-deductible
