Giving Back to Coll

Cameras Needed!

We have amazing and talented young men at Wellington College. We want to support them to unleash their potential and creativity. That’s why we need your help!

Not having the right equipment is a barrier to photography. One that we can overcome. Across our photography classes we have 41 students, but only nine with their own camera. The school currently has seven cameras available for the remaining 32 students. Can you please help us boost our photography programme with a donation today?

You can donate right now. The donation form is on this page! Thank you.

Wellington College fundraises to sustain the special character of the School both for today and for the longer term.  

The Wellington College Foundation was established to serve generous donors wanting to give back to the School.  It does this by engaging with the whole community to attract, retain, and grow funds for the benefit of the boys and staff and by acting as Trustee for funds raised.  The Wellington College Foundation draws on the experience of our Old Boys’ community to provide support and advice to make your giving transformative and impactful.

Additionally the Wellington College Foundation proudly supports cultural and sporting excellence by sponsoring the annual Black and Gold Awards.

While the College uses all means within its power to provide value from government funding, we must be realistic enough to embrace the stance of our forebears by doing something to help ourselves. In so doing, we will retain the best of both state and independent funding.

Your support for the College will benefit thousands of young people in the years ahead.

If you want to give to the current and future generations of Wellington College students, then please get in touch the Director for Advancement now to discuss the impact your gift will make, email or ph (04) 803 0307.

A Gift in your Will

Many people have multiple demands on their finances that might preclude them making a gift in their lifetime.  Equally, they may have been supporters of the College in their lifetime and wish to make a final gesture of support.  A gift in your Will can be a final tribute to the College, a gift which endures in perpetuity, and can be put towards various areas of the College’s work.

A bequest to the College is a highly personal means of giving that has a lasting impact on future generations.  You can choose to donate a specific sum, a share of your estate, or other assets such as stocks and shares.

To discuss a gift in your Will, please email The Director for Advancement on or ph (04) 803 0307.

Memorial Window Appeal - 'Buy a Pane' Campaign

Your opportunity to put your name to a piece of history. Give from your heart and inspire the future.

While the construction of the Memorial Hall and Performing Arts Centre is now complete, our fundraising efforts continue. As part of our 'BUY A PANE' campaign, we have incorporated our donors names into the Memorial Window Honours Board in the new Memorial Hall. By ‘purchasing’ a pane, you are investing in the future of Wellington College and helping to meet the costs of the new Hall.

All Old Boys and current students know the Memorial Window, an enduring symbol of pride, tradition and service and uniquely made for Wellington College. Our new venue now has the iconic stained glass window back in its rightful place at the head of the new Memorial Hall and Performing Arts Centre and where the school now faces at each Assembly.

There are three tiers of pricing, the highest value allocated to the centre. Your purchase is considered as a donation. Please click here to ‘Buy Your Pane’.
