A history of giving

Since 1912, the Churchie community has given generously of their time, energy and resources in support of the vision of Canon Morris to create a school that is a blessing to its students and a gift to Australia.

The Churchie Foundation was formed in 1989 as the School's central fundraising body, with an aim to provide financial support for building priorities and scholarship programmes and ​grow an endowment to provide ongoing funds.​


How you've helped

  • $2.5 million contributed to academic scholarships since 2008
  • $1.4 million contributed to bursaries since 2008
  • 129 Old Boys supported through post-graduate study in the UK and USA since 1994
  • 12 Yalari scholars currently supported at Churchie.
