There are a number of ways in which you can provide financial support to the students at Redlands College; by making a donation to one of the three College funds, or if you are a business, through sponsorship opportunities. The College funds include the Redlands College Foundation Bursary, the Thomas Todd Bursary and the Redlands College Building Fund.
Your Donation Helps
We have been able to continue our support to families due to the ongoing donations from parents, staff and other associates of Redlands College. These donations are now tax-deductible.
Without such generous donations, some families would have to leave the supportive, caring environment of Redlands College to search for a new school, adding to an already stressful situation. The Foundation endeavours to avoid this by providing temporary fee assistance.
For further information regarding the Bursary Fund, contact the College on 3286 0222.
As a school community, we seek to embody and reflect the image and nature of Jesus Christ. The spread of COVID-19 has impacted members of our community, including job losses, financial constraints, health complications and a general feeling of uncertainty. It is our desire to inject hope where there may be hopelessness and peace where they may be anxiety.
Attached here is an outline of the Redlands College Foundation, trustee for the Bursary Fund. This Fund provides short-term fee relief for families who are facing significant and unexpected financial difficulties. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please email Ms Lisa Wilson on email@example.com to discuss a bursary application.

The Bursary Fund
The Fund’s History
The Bursary Fund was developed in 1989 to provide short-term school fee assistance to families who were experiencing financial difficulties.
Over this time, the Fund has contributed about $500,000 to College families.
Redlands College Foundation is a charitable company whose primary objective is to support an education for students at Redlands College who are aged between 4-18 years. The Foundation provides financial assistance to a number of students who have submitted an application for enrolment, have met the College’s entrance requirements and have been assessed as requiring financial support.
This financial assistance is provided in the form of annually reviewed bursaries, short-term financial hardship relief and support for uniforms. Most bursarial support is provided in the Senior School and the level of support is dependent on the financial circumstances of the student’s parents or legal guardians.
Bursaries are provided as a reduction in College tuition fees by either 25%, 50% or 75%, with each student’s family expected to provide a contribution at some level towards the cost of their education. The Foundation determines the level of assistance provided through an assessment of after tax household income, which includes a notional income based on assets, investments and equity in property and/or a business where applicable.
At Redlands, a number of special events are held every year, including School Performances, the Fusion Arts Festival and the School Musical. These events showcase the achievements and talents of our students, and/or raise funds for College resources and facilities.
Major events such as our school musicals provide a great opportunity for businesses to gain exposure throughout the Redlands through advertising and partnership with sponsorship, and also internally throughout the school community as details are published regularly to over 800 families.
Please contact the Communications Officer on 3286 0222 for further details on our attractive sponsorship packages and our next event.
