College Funds and Donations

 

Dear Parents & Guardians,

As a Catholic voluntarily aided college, any repairs, maintenance or building work the college requires has to be part funded by the college itself. Currently, this stands as the college having to contribute 10% of the costs of any building or repair work on our site. Over the years, Saint George has been generously supported by families within the college community, in raising the necessary funds to do this, and build our new sports hall and Doyle block to name but two examples.

Unfortunately, now that the Government’s Building Schools for the Future programme has been suspended, contributions and support from our families is ever more vital in improving the facilities here for our students. We are still committed to looking to the future of our college, and we are currently in the process of bidding for various grants which can only be obtained if again the college contributes 10% of that building cost.

I am therefore writing to all families to support the college, and contribute £5 a month (£20 per term). The best way of giving to the Governors’ fund is to make your gift tax efficient by making a Gift Aid Declaration. You can make your donation by completing a Bank Standing Order form and Gift Aid Declaration or by sending a regular donation by cash or cheque made payable to Saint George Catholic VA College.

We rely on the support of the community of Saint George to take the college into the future, and for us to see another successful fifty years in buildings that match the academic potential of our students.

With many thanks,

Yours sincerely
