The St John’s Grammar Foundation has three core components that people can donate to:
St John’s Grammar Foundation Fund
Donations toward the ancillary fund will support all aspects of the Foundation and will be used to fill any shortfall in funding for any projects.

The Building Fund will provide money for acquiring, constructing or maintaining the School buildings, over and above the capital works achieved with Capital Levy and Government Grant monies.
St John’s Grammar Scholarship Fund
Donations toward the Scholarship Fund will provide money for scholarships for students who would not otherwise have an opportunity to have an education at St John’s Grammar School.
