St George’s College Foundation Inc. was formed in 1988 to attract financial support from the College’s alumni and friends for the long-term support and benefit of the College.

It is independent of the College and is governed by a Board elected annually by its members. Under its Constitution, membership is offered to persons who have made gifts or given notification of an intended bequest at certain levels thereby qualifying as Member, Fellow, Trustee or Governor of the Foundation.  

The Foundation maintains the following special-purpose trust funds:
