The Foundation Today
The Foundation has evolved to where it now stands at the very heart of
The Southport School.
Established, in part, to provide leadership, Foundation members are actively
engaged in both the School and the community as a whole. Many participate in
various Support groups, Parents & Friends activities, and the Old
Southportonians, and several members have gone on to serve on the School
Council. All devote many hours throughout the year to the benefit of The
Southport School and in this way the Foundation shows leadership, provides a
role model for the boys and inspiration to others.
In keeping with this ethos, the Foundation is also proud to provide three
Scholarships each year to boys entering Year 7.
By making immediate building and maintenance funds available to the School, the
Foundation is helping realise the School’s development plans as well as
providing a secure foundation upon which to plan for the future.
Our monthly Business Breakfast program at Palazzo Versace is regarded as the
premier meeting on the Gold Coast and continues to gather large audiences from
the local business community.

The Foundation annual Golf Day is well supported by the wider community and
raises valuable funds for the school.

The Foundation operates quite separately from the School Council,
Administration, Old Southportonians' Association, Parents & Friends Association
and various Support groups within the School. The Foundation Board of
Management, elected at the Annual General Meeting, is vested with the control
and management of the Foundation and its funds.
