Christians are resilient and have risen to challenges time and again over the centuries. We invite you to join us in meeting the greatest challenge the Serbian Church in Australia has faced to date. A joyous challenge which is aimed at nurturing and preserving our most priceless treasure – our children.
At St Sava College we are nearing the end of our second year of operation. Enrolments for next year will see our student cohort nearing 100, and we are pleased to announce that Stage 2 plans are being submitted to Council for the construction of a primary school comprising eight classrooms and associated facilities. Stage 2 will be partially funded through a government grant amounting to two-fifths of the $5,000,000 cost to build. The remainder will be raised through community fundraising and a commercial loan.
The Covid pandemic rendered the school closed to visitors for all of last year and the beginning of this year. During that time fundraising was almost impossible. Thankfully, that situation is about to change and we are opening St.Sava College to the broader community on Sunday the 16th of October with our inaugural St Sava College Spring Fair. A full range of activities and attractions will be available for all to enjoy, and most importantly, the College will be open for all to explore.
Unlike other community organisations, we are not seeking corporate sponsors of this event. We are, however, seeking corporate and individual tax-deductible donations to help kick-start the fundraising drive. Donations of $1,000 and more, will be acknowledged in a publication that will be distributed Australia wide, by the Serbian newspaper VESTI, over the weekend of the Spring Fair. Donations of $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000 and over, will be given prominent recognition in the publication. And of course, the names of all donors will be recorded on honour boards in the foyer of the College. All donors of $1,000 and over will be recognised as College Corporals.
To make your fully tax deductible donation to the St Sava College Building Fund complete the form below. Upon receipt of your donation, a tax-deductible receipt will be emailed directly to you.
Shortly thereafter, a member of our Fundraising Team will contact you to request a file containing your company logo and relevant details for inclusion in our St Sava College Spring Fair publication.
The support of individuals, associations and corporations to date, gave us the courage to embark on this ambitious project. Your continued support will embolden our conviction, that St Sava College is the very best the Serbian Orthodox and her sister churches and nations can provide our children.
God Bless you for your generosity !
