Ormond Emergency Support Fund

Protect the College and support students during and immediately beyond the COVID-19 pandemic

This global crisis presents the greatest challenge in the College’s 140-year history. Help support our students through this crisis and secure the College’s future.

While many students chose to return home for a time, we still have students in residence who are calling the College home throughout the crisis.

Whether in residence or not, we are in regular contact with our students and know the crisis is having huge impact on many of them individually, and for their families.

We are doing everything we can to help our students most in need during this crisis.

How your gift will make a difference

Many in our community have expressed their desire to support the College and its students.

Now, more than ever, our students need your support so they can continue their education and life at Ormond.

This crisis has impacted everyone in unique ways which is why it is so heartening to hear expressions of support and the desire to want to give back and help those in our community most in need.

Please give today to the Ormond Emergency Support Fund, which will:

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. Many have lost their casual employment, while others have had their parents’ jobs and businesses impacted. Your gift will go to those hardest hit.

Help Ormond overcome the financial impact of COVID-19. A tax deductible gift to the fund can also enable the College to undertake emergency capital works to adapt spaces such as the kitchen servery, bathrooms and communal areas to be COVID-safe and position us for the future.  

“Receiving a scholarship has enabled me to experience the life-changing atmosphere, environment and opportunities that our College offers. I can’t wait to return in the coming months and continue that journey”. – Oscar Wysick, Commerce 2
