Giving to Wilderness

Our goal is to ensure that Wilderness will continue to provide an excellent education to our students for generations to come.

From parents and foundations to old scholars and staff, those who support Wilderness come from many different backgrounds. What they share is a belief in Wilderness’ mission and a commitment to advancing it.

We are fortunate to have a community that shares our vision for our girls and enables us to make a difference to their learning and lives. At Wilderness, we are proud of our long-standing history as the oldest independent girls’ school in South Australia and we are grateful to have a community that supports our growth and development as a leading educator of girls.

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 legacy through a bequest, with your help, we are able to make a difference to our girls’ learning and lives for generations to come. Every contribution counts and your gift of any size is appreciated.
