Giving to Wilderness

As we celebrate 140 years of exceptional education, we are proud to recognise our community’s significant impact in building our legacy. It is through the generosity of our donors that Wilderness School will continue as a world-leader in education, enabling each girl to be her best.

There are many ways to demonstrate your support for Wilderness. Whether through the gift of education by establishing a scholarship or prize, the development of our facilities, or leaving a gift in will, we are able to make a difference to our girls’ futures. Every contribution counts and your gift of any size is appreciated.


The generosity of our community enables us to offer a number of scholarships each year to girls who have demonstrated outstanding academic ability, a commitment to pursuing further academic success, and who embody our School Values with a particular focus on Responsible Citizenship.

The gift of education through a 140th scholarship will provide access through tuition remission to a deserving girl.


Building Fund

The Wilderness School Foundation Building Fund is the major source of income for significant redevelopment and capital works.

The Margaret Brown Building redevelopment will be a vibrant hub in the heart of campus, an ecosystem for innovation in education, and an opportunity for Wilderness girls to build relationships with leading enterprises, old scholars, and top universities.



Behind every prize is an inspirational story. What is yours? Each year across every year level, we recognise the individual academic, sporting and community achievements of our girls with annual prizes.
