The Development Office
Donations to St. Columba’s College are managed by our Development Office, who use the funds for bursaries, capital projects and more.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this section of the College website.
A permanent Development Office at St. Columba’s College, was established in early 2017 to engage with the St Columba’s community, including Old Columbans, parents, past parents, pupils, staff and our wider circle of friends, to support the College’s capital developments, College bursaries and special projects.
With the assistance of the Development Office, I look forward to building and sustaining relationships with all our supporters and friends. Your philanthropic support is crucial in transforming the life of the College both now and long into the future.
St. Columba’s has a long and proud tradition of philanthropic support, dating as far back as its establishment in 1840s, when a group led by Reverend William Sewell established the College. Past developments have included the opening of the Library (1994), Grange Building (2004), which housesover 100 boarders, as well as classrooms and house staff accommodation, the refurbishment of the 19th century Argyle buildings (2006) in the heart of the College, and the opening of the old Cadogan Building (2008) as a new music school.
We are delighted to announce that our most recent development within the College, Whispering House, a social and cultural centre, has recently been official opened. This wonderful new addition to our campus has already become a key focal point of daily College life. This and future development projects require significant support from the St. Columba’s Community.
St. Columba’s College is a distinctive school and I feel privileged to be leading it into the next phase of its distinguished history. We can look back at our heritage with pride and look forward to the future with great purpose.
I thank you for your continued interest and support and look forward to working with you on our philanthropic endeavours over the months and years ahead.
