The Marist College Canberra Foundation

Transforming lives, together.

Our Mission

The Marist College Canberra Foundation is a dedicated and passionate organisation committed to supporting the growth and development of Marist College Canberra. Established to provide opportunities for students who may not have the financial means to access a Marist education, we believe in the transformative power of education for all.

Our foundation is built on the core values of fostering strong minds and gentle hearts, ensuring that every student can thrive and contribute meaningfully to society.

Our Vision

The Marist College Canberra Foundation envisions a future where boys with strong minds and gentle hearts help build a better world. We aim to create a ripple effect of success, where bursaries enrich our broader school community and empower all students to contribute to the nation's progress.

We believe in education for all, ensuring financial barriers do not prevent access to a Marist education. Through experience and encounter, we foster true learning, understanding, and respect. Our greatest impact comes from transforming the lives of community members who need it most, while preserving and promoting the dignity of every student.  

How we help.

The Marist College Canberra Foundation funds the bursary program at Marist College Canberra, providing essential financial assistance to students in need. Bursaries are grants of money designed to help students with their education, enabling them to complete their studies without the burden of financial constraints. Internationally, bursaries have become a significant source of support for both university and school students, and at Marist College Canberra, our bursary program aims to transform the lives of many boys and their families.

By offering these bursaries, we not only assist those in need but also foster a spirit of community and support within the Marist family. The impact of our bursary program extends beyond the recipients, enriching the lives of all members of the Marist community who contribute to this vital initiative.
