Annual Giving

Ormond has always had an important role to play to ensure that the extraordinary opportunities College life creates are accessible to many.

The Ormond experience is not just about the academic and residential offering; it is about the rich diversity of our community: our students, alumni and friends.

To support the College and make a difference to the students who call Ormond home, donate online.

How to make a difference

Frank Raleigh Scholarship

Help us grow the Frank Raleigh Scholarship Fund and ensure its lasting legacy. Frank Raleigh’s generosity has enabled us to financially support students for decades. Your donation will ensure Frank’s legacy lives on and Ormond remains accessible for more talented students. Frank passed away after giving 61 years of his life to our College. In his will, he left all the money he had
to establish a scholarship fund. He wanted to ensure students without the financial means had the chance to benefit from the life-changing educational experience Ormond provides. And, with your help, his scholarship fund will continue to support students for years to come.

Hugh Collins Scholarship

For many students coming from government schools, the cost of college fees are simply beyond consideration. Help from you will ensure that we can assist even more talented students to benefit from an Ormond experience.

Pompey Elliott Rural Scholarship

The Harold ‘Pompey’ Elliott Rural Scholarship enables students from regional or rural Australia, in need of financial support, to come to Ormond. The Scholarship honours Ormondian Brigadier General Harold ‘Pompey’ Elliott, Australia’s great WWI fighting general who was famous for the care he had for his soldiers. He came to Ormond from his home in West Charlton outside Ballarat.

Indigenous Scholarship

Indigenous students are an integral part of our College community and we are actively committed to increasing the number of indigenous students at Ormond.  Your support in this area will enable us to assist even more exceptional students to thrive with an Ormond experience.

Special Project: Main Building entrance restoration 

Our capital projects strategy is part of an ongoing commitment to the conservation of our beloved buildings. The restoration program requires significant ongoing investment and skilled craftsmanship. With your support, our built heritage can be enjoyed for years to come. Past Annual Giving programs have made it possible for us to restore the western pinnacles of the Main Building and the Vesti entrance, which now stand renewed and strong. This year, we ask for your support for the next phase of works: the restoration of Main Building’s front entranceway. Weather and age is taking its toll on this iconic part of our beautiful home, and we need your help.
