GENerosity for GENerations. Investing in education for our future girls.

Since Genazzano FCJ College opened its doors over 135 years ago, a spirit of service and generosity has flourished. Giving has always been a part of Genazzano. Through the generosity of others and through continued partnerships with alumnae, friends, and parents, future generations of Genazzano girls can continue to access these opportunities. Your continued generosity will provide future Genazzano students with the resources they need to thrive.

2024 sees the launch of the Genazzano Foundation, bringing all of our gifting under a single banner. 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. Philanthropy is truly part of the Genazzano spirit. Our performing arts center, 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 that prepare our girls for the ‘road that lies before them’, we rely on the generosity of parents, past, present, and future and alumnae alike. Through our Annual Appeal and other fundraising efforts through our newly formed Foundation, together we can maintain the strength of our College and community and build on our shared vision for Genazzano.

In our 135th year, our strategic priorities are the Scholarship, Building and the Library Funds.

An education for life.

Scholarships recognise and enable achievement while nurturing the development of the whole person and encouraging excellence for all. Each year, a number of academic, music, boarding and sport scholarships are offered. The gifts to this fund provide the opportunity for a Genazzano education to young women who need a helping hand. A gift that empowers our girls to be agents of social change, to transform the world with confidence, and to become the future leaders of the world in which they live.

Building Fund

Supporting our magnificent buildings and grounds for future generations, with facilities that prioritise student engagement, wellbeing, support, promoting active learning.

We have seen many physical changes with multiple refurbishment programs and new buildings in recent years. Including The Physical Performance Centre, a state-of-the-art centre that is one of the largest fitness training center in any girls’ school in Australia. Current projects include the refurbishment of Year 7 to 12 classrooms and the Wardell and Grange Hill buildings, the creation of learning spaces that support a contemporary and innovative curriculum, and upgrades to the lifts. 2024 will see the completion of a new Student Services at the Mont Victor Road entrance so all students feel welcome and embraced for who they are.

Public Library

The Grange Hill and d’Houet Libraries are important facilities for students and staff, offering extensive resources that support the learning, growth and curiosity of our community. Your gifts contribute to the upkeep of reading programs, research technologies and software, information literacy, storytime, book clubs and events that celebrate different authors and the importance of reading, writing and speaking. Our Libraries cater for our entire student body from ELC through to Year 12 and are much loved by our students – providing a place to connect, collaborate and create.
