"Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God - the rest will be given."

— Mother Teresa

Emmanuel College has set up the following funds to assist students and families in need:

  • The Emmanuel Necessitous Circumstances Fund
  • The Emmanuel College Building Fund
  • The Emmanuel College Scholarship Fund

Each Fund has DGR status with the Australian Taxation Office. All donations are tax deductible.

We are truly grateful to our community for their generosity.

The Emmanuel Necessitous Circumstances Fund

The Emmanuel Necessitous Circumstances Fund was established in 1997 with the express purpose of ensuring that in recognising the plight of underprivileged children in Australia, the Trust Fund be used for the relief, assistance and support of underprivileged students of the College who are in necessitous circumstances. Such circumstances may require relief for alleviation of financial distress, assistance, support, care, comfort and maintenance and for the furtherance of their education including provision of accommodation, clothing and equipment, including persons suffering cultural disadvantages.

The Emmanuel College Building Fund

The Building Fund was established in 1985 with the express purpose of providing money for the acquisition, construction and maintenance of Emmanuel College. Campus developments since 1985 could not have been achieved without the generous support and contributions from the Gold Coast community. The College receives minor government funding for the construction of new buildings and relies heavily on community support to fund capital expenditure projects.

The Emmanuel College Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 to receive donations or contributions from the public exclusively to provide scholarships, bursaries or prizes to Australian citizens or permanent residents that are open to individuals or groups of individuals throughout Australia; promote the recipients’ education in pre-school, primary or secondary courses conducted by the College; and are awarded on merit or for reasons of equity. The Fund was initially established following a donation of $50,000 from the Queensland Development Research Institute.
