What a Difference WE Can Make

The Mentone Girls' Grammar School community has always had a strong culture of philanthropy and social responsibility. Thanks to the generosity of current and past generations of students, parents and friends of the School, our students are able to enjoy an outstanding educational experience. 

The Mentone Girls' Grammar School Foundation was established to assist the School to plan for the future with confidence through promoting a culture of giving and philanthropy. All donations to the Foundation support the School to develop and improve resources and high-quality facilities, implement new initiatives and provide our girls with the educational experience expected as part of a Mentone Girls' Grammar School education.

School fees and government grants cover only the essential running costs of the School including teacher salaries, classroom materials and recurring operating expenses. Donations through the Foundation are distinct from fees and grants, enabling the advancement of Mentone Girls’ Grammar School.  In order to remain a leader in quality education for girls, philanthropic support from our community is vital.

Supporting Remarkable Women – Ways to Contribute

  1. Donate to our remarkable learning environment through the Building Fund so we can build and maintain state-of-the-art facilities. Currently enrolled families can choose to make a small regular voluntary contribution to the Building Fund with their school fees. Other individuals may also contribute to this fund.
  2. Donate to the Scholarship Fund and enable promising young women the opportunity for a quality education. Mentone Girls’ Grammar School aims to attract an even greater and more diverse range of motivated and talented students. Through the Scholarship Fund, we can ensure that scholarships are made available to girls whose families who would otherwise be unable to access or remain at the School.
  3. Donate to the Library Fund and help to ensure the highest quality of resources for students and staff at our Kerferd Library.
  4. Remember Mentone Girls’ Grammar in your will and make a Bequest to support the School’s future. A bequest is a way of ensuring your commitment and support of Mentone Girls’ Grammar School.

All donations to approved funds are tax deductible. The Foundation provides recognition opportunities and stewardship to all donors.
