Support our students through this crisis and secure the College’s future
The COVID-19 global pandemic has impacted so many people in very personal ways, upending jobs, homes and livelihoods, isolating families and disrupting education. This is true also of the College and our students. Many students now find themselves in need of financial assistance to continue their life and education at Ormond, while the College needs to undertake emergency capital works to adapt spaces to be COVID-safe.
You have the opportunity to make a real difference to Ormond and the lives of our students. By giving to the Ormond Emergency Support Fund or one of our key diversity access scholarships, your support will ensure we can continue to provide a remarkable experience for students as they find their place in the world.

Ormond Emergency Support Fund
Both the College and our students are feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. While the majority of students chose to return home for a period of time, the College has continued to operate, caring for those students who needed to call Ormond home now more than ever. This has left the College with a significant financial shortfall. Our students are feeling financial pressures as well, with many in need of financial assistance to continue their education and life at Ormond.
The Ormond Emergency Support Fund has been established to protect the College’s future, and support our students during and immediately beyond this crisis. A tax-deductible gift to the Ormond Emergency Support will be used to:
Assist students experiencing extreme financial hardship
While one third of Ormond students are traditionally recipients of financial assistance, the number of students in financial need has increased significantly.
Help Ormond overcome the financial impact of COVID-19
We need to undertake urgent capital works to adapt spaces such as the kitchen servery, bathrooms and community areas to be COVID-safe.
