The St George's College Foundation is constantly working to obtain financial support for the long-term growth and benefit of the College. Through a variety of funds, we are able to support resident scholarships, College maintenance, major new building works and the general enrichment of the lives of our students.
However, we always need more support. This year’s Annual Giving campaign is to fund a marquee to use in the Arcus Court in the new Rodgers Wing currently under construction. As the College community grows more and more pressure is placed on the Dining Hall as competing interests need to use it. More and more often College residents are unable to have meals in the Dining Hall as the space is required for other activities such as rehearsals for the College play or the Georgian Cocktail Party. Events like the Cocktail Party also cause significant wear and tear on the Dining Hall – the floorboards are now so thin that soon it will not be possible to sand it back to repair damage.
A marquee will provide an alternative venue for these type of events so that College residents can enjoy meals – and chats and study procrastination - in the Dining Hall in the same way that past College residents have been able to since 1931. By helping the College buy the marquee you will be preserving the Dining Hall as an important part of the College community and allowing College residents to enjoy the same sort of experiences that you enjoyed when you lived at College.
More information can be found in the 2019 Annual Giving brochure.
