The Advancement Office stands for and promotes Friend Raising and Fund Raising.
Our core business is to foster links to the past, present and future by communicating with Old Boys, the Parent community, present students, sponsors and businesses to further the strong sense of belonging to the Wellington College family.
Wellington College Old Boys are spread around New Zealand and across the world, and with the availability of a range of modern technology, it is our intention to both maintain and further strong relationships with the College.
Our approach is to develop and foster philanthropic activities, supporting the College by raising funds to enhance resources, enabling Wellington College to continue to provide the first-class level of education it has offered now for 150 years.
Wellington College is rated a Decile 10 school by the Ministry of Education which means it receives a very small portion of Government funding compared to a Decile 1 school. It is essential therefore to provide an alternative means of income to Government funding in order to maintain the future financial security of the College.
