Giving Day

At St Margaret's, we are fortunate to benefit from the shade of trees planted by others. Now it's our turn to plant some trees.

At St Margaret’s, we are fortunate to benefit from the shade of trees planted by others. Now it’s our turn to plant some trees.

By donating to St Margaret’s on our fourth annual Giving Day, on Wednesday 24 May, you will be making a lasting impact for future generations. You can assist us to literally grow trees as part of a special project if you donate to the Building Fund OR by donating to bursaries through the Scholarship Fund, you will be planting the seed by giving a girl every opportunity to grow through the gift of a St Margaret’s education.

A donation to the Building Fund will support the development of The Canopy Cafe, a new cafeteria that articulates to a beautiful and functional greenspace with outdoor seating that will benefit all primary and secondary students.

A donation to the Scholarship Fund will, through needs-based bursaries, help us to support young women in accessing or completing a St Margaret’s education; an opportunity that some girls thought wasn’t possible. 

Watch our 2023 Giving Day video, learn more about our priorities and make a donation online via the Giving Day platform:

St Margaret’s students and staff have planned some exciting fundraising initiatives to take place on Wednesday 24 May to support this Giving Day, and in celebrating house spirit, we will be recognising the house with the best participation and most funds raised. When you donate, don't forget to nominate your house!

M's Cafe on campus will be the site of our Giving Day Operations Room on the day. If you would like to help us on the phones with calling members of our community to spread the word about Giving Day, please complete our Volunteer sign-up form at

We sincerely thank those within our community who have already generously given in support of this campaign.

Please join with us on Giving Day, and together, let’s give every girl every opportunity to grow.
