The OCS Bursary Fund Fund

Find out more about the Old Columbine Society’s ‘Burary Fund’ and how you can support us them achieving their ambitious goals.

The OCS Bursary Fund

In addition to College Bursaries, the Old Columban Society established the OCS Bursary Fund in 2011 which specifically supports the children and grandchildren of Old Columbans (OCs).

For many and varying reasons, a number of OCs and their families have been unable to meet the full cost of College fees. The main purpose of the Fund is to offer financial assistance to these individuals. The Funds donated go directly to assisting in paying the College fees rather than paying the entire fee.

To maintain and nurture this Fund, the OCS encourages its members to commit to a suggested amount of €21* per month or €250 per year, or whatever they may be willing to donate.

The College and the Old Columban Society are most grateful for support to these Bursary Funds and wish to extend our thanks to all who have enabled our bursary pupils to flourish in the environment of St. Columba’s and on into their futures.

Please note: Gifts over €21 or per month or €250 per year allow the College to claim an additional tax relief on this contribution amplifying the impact of your gift.
