Our fundraising activities

Wellington College was created thanks to a generous act of philanthropy which continues to be essential for the ongoing development and success of the College. By supporting the College, you will be part of a broad philanthropic community helping to deliver an education that is unsurpassed anywhere in the world.

Your generous donations can be directed towards the Prince Albert Foundation (PAF) Scholarship programme which offers students with talent and promise but limited means a chance to benefit from a Wellington education. It can also contribute to preserving our buildings and grounds. Lastly, your donations can be directed to unrestricted funds, which gives College the flexibility to direct the money to the area most needed at the time.

As a supporter of College, you will become a member of one of our Giving Circles, which aim to celebrate philanthropy at College and create a community of like-minded individuals.
