Giving and

Making a difference through Education—
it’s your lifelong legacy.

At Loreto Normanhurst, we offer multiple ways to support the future of girls through education. We invite you to connect with social impact programs that are focused on the importance of education.

Our Rich Culture of Giving

Philanthropic giving holds a special place in our hearts and has done so since our beginning 125 years ago.

We are committed to instilling in our students a deep understanding of philanthropy's transformative impact, particularly in women's empowerment, and that making a meaningful difference is a lifelong commitment. In line with the enduring values of our foundress, Mary Ward and the Ignatian tradition, our students and school community devote time from their busy lives to serve others. We balance contemplative prayer and active engagement in social justice, demonstrating a profound commitment to others.

For us, philanthropy is not just an act; it's a way of life, a reflection of our shared values, and an investment, a legacy of creating a lasting societal impact.

We are united - current and past students, parents and friends, recognising that the foundation for building fulfilling and sustaining lives begins with a quality education and the opportunities it provides.
