Our Focus

"The St Patrick’s College Foundation encourages and facilitates the generous gifts and donations which flow from individuals, families and businesses connected to the College. The Foundation was established in 2010 to ensure that the vision of the early Marists, to educate young people, especially those most neglected, continues for many generations to come.

St Patrick's College itself, was built in the spirit of generosity, with the support of the Society of Mary Fathers and Brothers numerous Wellingtonians and other New Zealanders. This magnanimity has ensured that a Catholic education steeped in faith, manaakitanga, achievement, hauora and integrity is available for successive generations of young men. It is from all our past generations of Patricians and families that the Foundation seeks support to continue its work of supporting the College to deliver education at St Pat's today and into the future."
