The Cranbrook Foundation was founded in 1974 by Cranbrook School. It is a company limited by guarantee, and is administered by a Board of Directors. Its day to day activities are supported by the Director of Development, a member of the Cranbrook School staff. The purpose of the Foundation is to provide long term financial support for the advancement of the School.
The Cranbrook community is caring, involved and generous. We are deeply grateful for the many gifts provided by Old Cranbrookians, parents both current and past, grandparents, staff and friends. This support has assisted in making Cranbrook exceptional in every way.
Like many independent schools, Cranbrook depends on the support of the entire community – school fees and government grants alone do not support new capital projects, major maintenance and restoration of existing buildings, visiting academics or the ongoing support and enhancement of the School’s scholarships and bursary programmes.
Over the past ten years the Cranbrook community has gifted over $20 million to the Foundation. Whilst much has been achieved during this time, we must continue to look to the future and challenging plans are now underway for the re-development of our Senior School.
