PHILANTHROPY AT KNOX

Philanthropy played an essential role in the establishment of Knox. Within the first 15 years of our history, 17 benefactors each contributed £1,000 towards the School’s development. It was their generosity and foresight that created Knox and allowed it to thrive.

Knox Grammar is deeply committed to fostering close, authentic relationships with parents, alumni and the wider community. As we approach the Knox Centenary in 2024, philanthropic opportunities will continue to play a vital role in our capacity to improve access to high quality education and to provide the very best learning and teaching environment possible. We invite you to join us in honouring the past and building for the future.

THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Scholarships empower young people to realise their full potential by removing barriers to education for students who exhibit an aptitude to succeed.

Scholarships support students from a diverse range of backgrounds and circumstances to attend Knox and excel. We currently offer a limited number of scholarships, which include Indigenous Scholarships. We are committed to providing more opportunities over the coming years. All contributions to the Scholarship Fund are tax-deductible.

THE BUILDING FUND

Providing a range of world-class, high quality facilities to support the education and learning experience of our students is a very high priority. As one of the largest independent schools in the country, we are continuously developing, upgrading and building for the future across our three campuses (Knox Prep, Wahroonga Prep and Knox Senior School) to ensure our students have access to the very best environment in which to learn and develop. All contributions to the Building Fund are tax-deductible.
