A Gift for the Future
Campion College is an independent institution of higher learning that receives no government funding for operational purposes. As such, it relies on the generosity of those who support our mission. While support for the college can take a variety of forms, a ‘Gift for the Future’ is one of the most powerful ways you can help secure the future of Campion College. By including a gift to Campion in your Will, you can help support college activities, projects, residential life and student needs long into the future.
We have been thankful over the years for the gifts we have received via Bequests. Supporters of Campion College Australia leave a legacy, not simply to a cause, but to a future. Please see below for endorsements from some of our supporters.
The Power Family, long term donors and co-founders of Campion College Australia, encourage our supporters to sign up to the ‘Gift for the Future’ campaign. “By leaving something to Campion you are contributing to the education of young adults in Liberal Arts that will endure well beyond your lifetime.”
Dr John Casey, a retired medico from Brisbane relishes the opportunity to contribute to Campion, and further the cause of Catholic Education in young Australian adults. He said: “I strongly recommend the Gift for the Future Campaign”.
Mrs Peggy Power, passionate benefactor to Campion College Australia encourages our supporters to sign up to the ‘Gift for the Future’ campaign. She said, “I have seen with my own eyes the deep and lasting value of a truly Catholic liberal arts education on my children and grandchildren. It is hard to think of a more valuable gift you can provide for young people, the Catholic Church and Australia than by leaving a bequest to Campion”.
We are conscious of the significance of each and every donation and bequest received by the College, and strive, always, to live up to the trust placed in us.
How you can help
There are a number of ways in which the College can be helped through a bequest to the Campion Foundation. For example:
- You can give a specific amount of money or other assets
- You can donate a percentage of your Estate – for example, 50%, 20%, 10%. This ensures your family and friends are not disadvantaged by changes in the size of your Estate or by inflation.
- After providing for family and friends, you may decide to leave the residue of your Estate to the Campion Foundation for the development of Campion College.
To ensure that your exact intentions are made clear, it is desirable that your Will be prepared in consultation with a solicitor.
Bequests to the Campion Foundation are tax-exempt.
Opportunities for Giving
A bequest to Campion College can be most readily expressed in the following form:

A bequest may express a particular wish as to how the gift is to be used – for example, to help the College Library to acquire important books and other resources, or to support the Scholarship and Bursary Fund for students in need.
