WCS Foundation

Securing the long-term future of the School

The WCS Foundation has the objective of building and preserving a capital fund from which the income may be used to provide financial and other assistance for the benefit of the School. This fund will help sustain the special character and strengths of the School and its position at the forefront of education in New Zealand.

By funding a wide range of high priority tasks (like the Foundation Hockey Turf, pictured) the Foundation seeks to maintain and improve the educational, cultural, spiritual and recreational environment of the School. The ultimate aim for the Foundation is to secure the long term future of the School, but opportunities for ongoing support will be seized as change and special needs arise. Trustees, four of whom are elected by Foundation members, with representatives of Wanganui Collegiate School executive and support groups, form an autonomous Foundation Trust Board (FTB) which controls Foundation activities. The capital fund, registered as a Charitable Trust, is managed on sound business lines quite independently of the School.
