Giving to Girls Grammar

Supporting Brisbane Girls Grammar School has lasting and life-changing impact—your gift allows the School to build a strong future for Grammar girls.

Girls Grammar was built upon a heritage of giving, with each generation benefiting from the generosity of those who went before. Throughout its history, Girls Grammar’s diverse community has remained united in its shared belief in the importance of providing girls an exemplary education, with the opportunity to maximise their potential and contribute to society.

 

‘Brisbane Girls Grammar School remains proud of our culture of giving back and the School’s important role in empowering girls and young women to contribute to our collective future’
— Principal, Ms Jacinda Euler

 

Our Philanthropic Priorities

Brisbane Girls Grammar School’s philanthropic priorities are focused on four pillars essential to the School’s commitment to a broad, liberal education for girls. Read more about our philanthropic priorities below.

Bursaries

Creating Access and Opportunities

Girls Grammar fosters a climate of opportunity and has a rich history of educating girls from diverse backgrounds. Through Bursaries, the School is committed to offering the life-changing experience of a Girls Grammar education to girls who may not otherwise be able to attend the School. Gifts to the BGGS Bursary Fund provide support for needs-based bursaries and are fully tax-deductible.

Buildings

Inspirational Teaching and Learning Spaces

Providing inspirational and engaging learning spaces is essential to support students to achieve their full potential.

Donations to the BGGS Building Fund contribute towards major projects to develop and maintain excellent purpose-built learning environments, such as the School’s newest facility, the Science Learning Centre.

Make a gift to the BGGS Building Fund and help us complete the Periodic Table in the Science Learning Centre. Choose from one of the remaining elements and have it dedicated in your name, or nominate your chosen House to support.

Excellent Educational Resources

The Elizabeth Jameson Research Learning Centre houses a vast array of specialist resources to spark imagination and discovery, and deepen knowledge. Gifts to the BGGS Library Fund are tax-deductible and help Girls Grammar to build a collection of enriching educational resources to stimulate students’ curiosity.
