Annual Fundraising

Our history of giving

In 2021 we have something very special to celebrate, our 175th anniversary. Our School’s foundation was possible thanks to people’s generosity. From the moment a committee was formed in 1838 to petition for a grant of land behind St John’s Church, support from people has underpinned the possibilities we have pursued and the achievements of the School.

From the construction of the first School building in the 1840s, to the move to Mowbray in 1923, to the building of the Chapel and every item within, to expansions in the 1980s as the School grew after the amalgamation with Broadland, to more recent developments like Faulkner Park, Café 1846 and the Aviation space, all these wonderful achievements would not have been possible without donations of all sizes, from small to large. Your gift is part of this success.

Choose your impact

Gifts of any size, to any of our campaigns, are greatly appreciated, and all make a significant difference.
Donations (over $2.00) to either the Launceston Church Grammar School Scholarship Fund Trust or Launcestonian Foundation Library Trust Fund are tax deductible.
