We are grateful to the Shore Community, who so generously give to support the boys. Here are some ways you can partner with us:
1. Make a Pledge over 3-5 years
To help meet our final target of $2m from the School community for the R A I Grant Physical Education Centre, we encourage you to consider making a gift to the School and spreading the payment of that gift over 3,4 or 5 years. All help and consideration is greatly received. For further information as to making a gift in such a way, call David Mason-Jones, Executive Director of the Shore Foundation on (02) 9956 1179 or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Online Donation Service
Our online giving facility ensures that making a difference to the future of Shore is as simple as choosing how you want to show your support and where you want to direct your donation.

3. Parent Voluntary Donation Programme
The Shore Foundation asks the parent community to support this programme when paying School fees by including a tax deductible voluntary donation of $250 each term. In 2019 voluntary donations paid was in excess of $300 000.00, an increase of 11% over the same time in 2018.
The Foundation is grateful for these donations, as they provide invaluable support to the School on an ongoing basis.
4. Name a Tile, Picket or Seat
‘Name a Tile’ is an exciting initiative in the new Shore Physical Education Centre. Tiles ($1000) will be a permanent record of your son’s or family name, displayed on the Aquatic Centre Donor Board.
There are still a few places available to support the Northbridge “Name a Picket” ($500) and “Name a Seat” ($1000) appeal. Donor names will be on display in the Hawker Grandstand or Football & Tennis stadium.
Please complete the forms below and send to email@example.com
5. Donate an auction prize
Auctions and raffles are a highlight at our Shore Foundation events. Holiday and luxury items are just some of the wonderful gifts we have received to help support the school. If you are able to donate suitable items, we would be sure to share your Company’s details with the Shore community.
6. Gift in a Will
Shore is grateful to have a strong legacy of philanthropy. Throughout the years, students, both past and present, have been beneficiaries of gifts in wills, generosity that has empowered the School to provide the highest standard of education possible. The Foundation invites you to join both Old Boys and parents who have made a commitment to the students of tomorrow. By making a gift in your will to The Shore Foundation, you are showing your commitment to helping us fulfil our goal of excellence and achievement in teaching, now and into the future.
Please download the Gift in Wills Brochure for more information.
7. Regular and Workplace Giving
We are pleased to be able to offer you the convenience of monthly Direct Debit from your bank account or credit card. To establish a Direct Debit arrangement please contact the Shore Foundation.
Some of our generous donors use Workplace Giving as a tax effective way to support the school. Employees contribute a portion of their pre-tax salary to the Shore Foundation (a Registered Charity with DGR status) and receive the tax benefit straight away.
Some Employers will also match donations made to eligible charities, thereby doubling the impact of your giving. Check with your employer as to whether this is available.
(Please seek Financial and Tax advice, regarding your individual circumstances.)
8. Giving from the USA
The AIS (USA) Foundation encourages individual and organisations to support education by receiving tax deductible donations. The USA Board of Directors periodically awards grants to Schools such as Shore.
The Australian Independent Schools USA Foundation was established in 2006 as an initiative of Newington College. The Foundation is incorporated and holds 501 .(C) (3) tax deductible status.
