Our Donors - Our Future

You don't have to be part of our past to be part of our Future.

Donor Charter

The Melbourne High School Foundation is grateful to all donors for their generous support and we are dedicated to treating them with the highest level of care and respect.

We will

  • Inform donors of the way we intend to use donated resources, and of our commitment to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  • Keep donors updated about the impact of their philanthropy and the Foundation’s evolving needs and priorities.
  • Provide the Foundation’s most recent published financial accounts and other relevant financial information in an easily accessible format.
  • Respect donors’ rights to privacy and fully comply with the Privacy Act.
  • Appropriately acknowledge, recognise and publicise donations in consultation with donors, and respect anonymity where requested.



  • All donations, when undesignated, will be used for such purposes as the Melbourne High School Foundation deems most appropriate for the advancement of its priorities.
  • Where the donor expresses a preference for the application of their donation, the Foundation will take the greatest care to ensure that such wishes are carried out.
  • Where the donor restricts the application of their donation, the Foundation will apply the gift to the purpose originally intended. The priorities of the Foundation will change from time to time. Should this happen, alternative uses for restricted donations will be discussed with the donor or the donor’s representative.
  • Donations will be acknowledged promptly.

We are pleased to honour our benefactors in a number of ways:

  • Naming Opportunities
  • Plaques and Donor Boards
  • Sponsorship Advertising
  • Events
  • Our website and publications


The Foundation welcomes support from individuals, trusts and foundations, and organisations. We are always happy to discuss ways in which relationships may be fostered with potential donors.We invite you to contact us if you are interested in our cause.
