MLC Foundation

Investing in the future of girls’ education

The MLC Foundation was established in 1998 to encourage and recognise financial support for the College and our students by our wider community, including our alumnae and current and past parents, staff, grandparents and friends.

The Foundation provides opportunities for the community to support the College by making tax-deductible donations to the Foundation’s Scholarship Fund, Building Fund or Library Fund to benefit our students.

Claire Rogers, past parent and member of the MLC Board, chairs the MLC Foundation, a Standing Committee of the College Board, with members including current parents and alumnae.

With our students at the centre of all our efforts, the Foundation Committee oversees the development of strategic philanthropic programs for MLC, including the Annual Giving Day, Scholarships and other major gifts and bequests.

The MLC Foundation honours all supporters

We thank and acknowledge all our loyal donors. Your commitment is vitally important to the continued delivery of excellence in education, enabling our students of today and tomorrow to become the citizens the world needs.
