The Newington College Foundation was established in 1974 to foster a culture of giving within our school community. The Foundation is the major fundraising arm of the College, providing financial assistance in support of our academic and means-tested scholarships, capital development and strategic initiatives.

The gift of giving

Every gift is vital to the Newington Foundation, no matter how big or small. The gift of giving provides the opportunity of a Newington education to generations of students.

Six generations of Old Boys, parents, and friends have generously supported the College with gifts that continue to have a transformative effect on the lives of Newington boys. For this, we are enormously grateful.

Our scholarships, many of them means-tested and designed to help boys who might not otherwise be able to take advantage of a Newington education, are sustained through the generosity of our supporters.

Our teaching and learning environments continue to evolve and adapt as educational practices change – helping our boys to remain focused on their future.

It is only through the generosity of our community that our boys can learn in environments that inspire them to develop great hearts, inspired minds and strong wings. Your support will provide the means to maintain and expand facilities that offer our boys and teachers flexibility, agency and connectedness.

Newington College Endowment Fund

The Newington College Endowment Fund has been established so that, by 2040, we can continually provide 100 potentially outstanding young boys from families with proven socio-economic need, the opportunity of a Newington education throughout secondary school. This is Newington’s social justice policy in action by actively pursuing our value of diversity through focus on socio-economic inequality. To achieve this goal, we need your support.

What difference can a Scholarship make?

The Newington College Endowment fund supports means-tested scholarships. Accordingly, only the most deserving of boys will be offered such an opportunity.

  • What does receiving a scholarship to attend Newington College really mean?
  • What impact can such an opportunity have on a young boy, his family and their future?

Why Support Us?

Like all schools, Newington’s day-to-day operations are met by fees paid by our parents and grants from the State and Federal Governments. We recognise the sacrifices made by our parents and the generous support of the Government and we spend our funds wisely. Accordingly, we rely on the goodwill and generosity of the Newington Community to provide funds to enable the Endowment Fund to become a reality or to continue to provide facilities for our boys.


We offer a number of scholarships to prospective and current students.

Building Fund

Gifts to the Building Fund enhance education by enabling the construction of purpose built facilities so we can provide every opportunity for Newington Boys to Discover what’s Possible.
