Giving Programs


Celebrate your family's connection with Lauriston

With the recent opening of the Ullmer Sports & Wellbeing Centre, this is your opportunity to support the new sports and learning facilities that will benefit Lauriston girls and the community for generations to come.


It's Her Turn Campaign

Lauriston has embarked on an exciting new building project that will give our students access to world-class facilities and inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces in which to learn and grow. Help us reach our goal – our girls deserve it!


Scholarship Programs

An education is a powerful gift, and every girl deserves the opportunity to realise her full potential. As well as offering financial aid, scholarships encourage diversity and academic excellence within our community. Lauriston offers many different scholarships.


General Building Program

Gifts to the Building Program let us continue to provide excellent infrastructure and spaces that will promote innovative programs, new opportunities and world-class educational opportunities. Over the years, the general building program has supported important equipment purchases, upgrades/refurbishments to existing facilities and general maintenance.


Library Program

The greatest gift one can give a child is the gift of reading. The Lauriston Junior School and Senior School libraries offer a wealth of resources for our students and staff through the provision of books and educational resources such as databases and online encyclopedias. Help us expand our students’ world through our Library Program.


Education Program

The Education Program enables the School to fund programs and resources for Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM), Music and Sport. Unrestricted funds form the bedrock of any School, especially in times of uncertainty. Our Annual Appeal for 2020, supporting current Lauriston families in financial difficulty as a result of COVID-19, is a part of the Education program. Help us support Lauriston families.


Gifts in Wills Program

Leaving a Gift in Will is an effective way of providing benefits for future generations. Past gifts bequeathed to the School have helped fund exciting new projects at the School. The existing Lilian Bayly 7/8 Centre and the Sarah Hollyer House at Howqua were both built from legacy gifts by Lauriston community members. Bequests may be a share of an estate, cash, items of personal property or real estate. Anyone who commits to leaving a bequest to the School becomes a member of the Elizabeth Kirkhope Circle. Leave your legacy.
