Since Genazzano FCJ College opened its doors 130 years ago, a spirit of service and generosity has flourished. Many members within the College and in the wider community have benefitted from the support of the College, through many fundraising events to upgrade buildings and scholarships to attend Genazzano. Philanthropy is truly ingrained in the Genazzano spirit. Indeed, our performing arts centre, the Madeleine Centre was realised through a concerted and sustained fundraising effort, providing excellent facilities to enable Gen girls to be their best.
Genazzano engenders a deep loyalty and passion from within its community. As parents, Alumnae, teachers, grandparents and friends, we work together to nurture close connections within the College and ensure that the community continues to thrive.
In order for the College to continue to offer programs, scholarships and facilities which prepare our girls for the ‘road that lies before them’, we rely on the generosity of parents, past, present and future, and alumnae alike.
With your support, we can achieve. Through our Annual Appeal and other fundraising efforts, together we can maintain the strength of our College and community and build on our shared vision for Genazzano.
We seek your support and ask you to please make a gift to our Annual Appeal. You can nominate to donate to our Building, Library or Scholarships & Bursary Funds.
The College Building Fund ensures that our magnificent buildings and expansive garden surrounds can be maintained for future generations. The Building Fund supports the continued maintenance, restoration and future development of our College buildings. Furthermore, it strengthens our objective to provide facilities that serve to fulfil the College’s vision for its Student Learning and Wellbeing program, for both current and future students. This would not be possible without your continued generous support.
The libraries, an important resource for students and staff alike, continue to offer opportunities for members of the College community to nourish their intellectual growth. Gifts to the Library Fund accelerate the renewal and upgrading of our libraries, and offer valuable new resources.
Over recent years, donations have also contributed to significant improvements in our library environment, including furnishings, a meeting space and improved technology and software for students. This fund supports our objective to ensure the libraries are exciting learning environments, offering a combination of advanced research technologies and study facilities with social spaces.
Genazzano’s reputation is one of the primary reasons parents enrol their children here. It is also true that many parents and alumnae would love to educate their children at Genazzano but, for economic reasons, they are unable to do so.
Scholarships allow the College to enrich and diversify the student community, providing a benefit for all students. A donation to the Scholarships Fund gives opportunities to those students who, ordinarily, would not be able to attend the College.
