Each year the TAS Foundation sends out the Annual Giving fundraising appeal in the hope that the TAS community will again assist us in helping to fund a select number of projects that the school most needs.
Therefore, it gives me great pleasure to commend to you this year’s Annual Giving program with a renewed focus on our Drought Relief Bursaries because the impact on TAS families of drought is of grave concern, particularly given the recent prediction of an El Niño weather event. We remain committed to doing all we can to provide some financial respite to those in need.
Your generosity makes a genuine difference at TAS and we see this same spirit in the parents, staff, Old Boys and students who volunteer and contribute to the life of the school.
Please also consider our Annual Giving projects — our Building Trust, the Indigenous Student Support Fund (ISSF), the Scholarship Fund, the Memorial Hall renovation, the Old Boys’ Shooting Appeal and the Jim Graham Scholarship. All of these initiatives are tax-deductible gifts worthy of your consideration this year. Each of them makes a real difference for a regional boarding school like TAS.
TAS is renown for high academic results, an extensive co-curricular program, its strong focus on wellbeing and leadership, service and adventure programs that build courage, compassion and commitment. Please join me in making a gift this year to the TAS Foundation. Together we can make a very real difference

2015 Annual Giving Appeals
These buildings are a legacy we have inherited from past families, and it is our turn to enhance it for generations to come.
We would like to continue to raise funds for bursaries that can assist those who need short-term financial assistance for their children’s education so they can continue at the school.
Any funds donated for Drought Relief Bursaries will be distributed to those families most in need.
The Old Boys’ Union has launched an appeal for the $40,000 needed for the significant upgrade to shooting facilities and rifles. The OBU, TAS P&F and the TAS Rugby Supporters Group have all pledged their financial support for the project, and we are asking for any additional donors interested in this project to contribute through the Foundation’s Annual Giving this year.
The gift to the school last year of a magnificent new organ for Memorial Hall lead to the first phase of renovations funded by the Foundation’s Building Trust and now we need to complete the work.
In this significant year marking the centenary of the landing at Gallipoli, is even more important that this landmark building be restored
