Major Gift Opportunities

A major gift is a substantial contribution that makes a transformative impact on the lives of our students.

Since our establishment, numerous members of our community have generously made significant gifts to support our students, contributing to buildings, scholarships, resources and other programs.

Benefactors may choose to support Scholarships, to enable girls from a diverse range of backgrounds (Melbourne, rural and regional areas, and Indigenous communities) to be able to come to and access an MLC education. Scholarships may be named for a limited-term or in perpetuity. If there are other areas that you would like to support, we would be very happy to discuss your ideas with you.

All donations may be made a via a single gift or pledge of up to five years, and are tax deductible.

To discuss all major gift opportunities please contact Sue Felton, Director of Advancement on +61 3 9274 6407.

Broadening your support

Philanthropy has underpinned the College and its first-class educational offering to its students since its establishment in 1882.  

Evidence of the generosity of our donors can be seen everywhere.  If you were to walk around the Kew Campus today, you would see the Junior School students thriving in their learning environment, and our Year 7 and 8 students enjoying new opportunities for dynamic multi-disciplinary learning in the recently opened Nicholas Learning Centre.

Philanthropy has even extended the borders of our campus to MLC Banksia located on the Gippsland Lakes and Marshmead located on Lake Mallacoota in the Croajilong National Park.  Both of these provide unique experiential learning opportunities – Marshmead was ahead of its time as one of the nation’s first environmentally focused, hands-on education setting. Inside our library, philanthropy has enriched our collection of digital and printed resources. Support of scholarships has broken down barriers for girls in our community who otherwise would not be able to experience an MLC education.
