The Foundation


We are indebted to the ongoing support and generosity of the Elizabeth College community

THE FOUNDATION 


The Elizabeth College Foundation was founded in 2006 specifically to help the College recognise, and consolidate, the tremendous support that the school enjoys from its extended community.

Since its creation, and through the generosity of its donors, the Foundation has played a vital role in supporting the College and creating life-changing educational opportunities.  The school is indebted to every one of those donors for the kindness and generosity they have shown.

The Foundation runs appeals approximately every five years and has had an enormous impact on the availability and quality of the facilities of the Elizabeth College Upper School and Junior School.

In 2019 the Foundation launched the Chance of a Lifetime Appeal with twin aims of securing the purchase of Perrot Court and establishing a new bursary scheme, to enable children from all walks of life in Guernsey, to have access to an Elizabeth College education.

It has been an extremely exciting time for the Elizabeth College Foundation with the commencement of the work to convert Perrot Court into educational facilities in June and the first eight Foundation Bursary students starting at College in September 2021.

We are delighted with the enthusiasm with which parents, prospective students and the wider community has embraced the Foundation Bursary Scheme which has already attracted a very positive level of good calibre applicants.  You can find out more on our Bursaries: Appeal page here.

Anyone who has passed Elizabeth College in the last few months will have noticed that work has started in earnest on the development programme to convert Perrot Court into educational facilities. You can find out more on our Perrot Court page here.

The scale and success of the Foundation’s appeals are in part due to the generosity of a small number of significant donors. However, any gift can genuinely make a difference to the future of the College. It should be emphasised that all gifts to the Foundation are greatly appreciated.
