The College relies on support from past Collegians and other friends of St Mark's so it can offer a world-class college experience.
In 2020 and beyond, the College especially needs your support to help students with scholarships and bursaries - most urgently to support students who have been hit hard financially by the COVID-19 pandemic (e.g. through the loss of casual jobs or their parents losing their jobs).
At this Annual Giving time in 2020, the need is real.
Will you help, please?
St Mark’s has been created, supported and sustained by philanthropy for nearly a century. Many alumni, grateful for all the College did for them, have given back to pass on this opportunity to future generations.
The funds raised enable the College to offer its students the best all-round educational experience it can.
Financial support is especially needed now for scholarships and bursaries to enable students to live and learn at St Mark’s, and especially at this time to help students in financial need.
The College also has a goal of providing facilities and support that meet the changing needs of current and future students so that it can continue to attract a diverse, intellectually-engaged community of students.
Support from the St Mark’s community is essential for these goals to be achieved.
