A spirit of philanthropy has not only been a significant part of Terrace's history, it is at the heart of who we are. Ever since the Christian Brothers established the College in 1875, Terrace boys have benefitted from a broad tapestry of support from throughout the College Family. Gifts ensure that the College remains true to our founder’s vision as a vital and successful educational institution. Terrace's Spring Hill Campus, Waterford Place Learning Centre, Maroon Outdoor Education Centre, Tennyson Playing Fields and the College Bursary Program have all benefitted from the generosity of generations of Terracians.
Every member of the Terrace community is invited to invest in the ongoing development of our College by contributing their own personal gift towards the area/s of their choice.2017 Donor Thank You ListPledge CampaignEdmund Rice Bursary Fund1987 Class Bursary Campaign1971 Class Bursary CampaignBuilding FundTennyson Take a Seat Campaign

Tennyson "Take a Seat" Campaign
After the devastating floods of 2011, the Foundation made a commitment to assist the College in the repair and refurbishment of the Tennyson Playing Fields. In 2013 the Foundation launched the Tennyson Campaign, which included the offer to "Take a Seat". This campaign provided the wider Terrace Family the opportunity to record their name in the history of St Joseph's College by donating a named seat in the new Old Boys' Grandstand. All donations made to this fund are tax-deductible. To date, this campaign has funded the building of a new 1000-seat grandstand, the refurbishment and extension of the Rodgers Pavilion, spacious new change rooms, picket fence, floodlighting and electronic scoreboard. This exciting project was blessed and opened on 26 July 2014. There are still limited opportunities to become involved in the ongoing redevelopment of the Tennyson Fields by donating a named seat.
