The St Stithians Endowment Fund
The Saints Endowment Fund, established in 2010, creates a long-term capital growth Fund for St Stithians, under the care of professional fund managers. Oversight is in the hands of the Endowment Fund Investment Committee. The Fund generates revenue for projects associated with the College’s strategic priorities. Please see below the range of current projects:
The Nehemiah Education Ministry (Ivory Park)
The Nehemiah Education Ministry is a registered Non-Profit Organisation who serves one of the most impoverished communities, namely Ivory Park, which is a township East of Johannesburg. The community currently has a population of over 180 000 people of whom over 80 % is unemployed. It is within this context that they in collaboration with the Boys’ Preparatory provide Early Childhood education to 460 pre-schoolers and primary school education to 180 students. In addition to this they also provide every child with a hot meal every day. Since the outbreak of COVID -19 and the lockdown these children have been some of the most severely affected. Your donation will go a long way in assisting with the feeding scheme as well as the buying of essential Personal Protective Equipment as the schools are gearing up to open its doors at the end of the National lockdown.

Both the Boys' Sports Pavilion and the Girls' Sports Pavilion have been built and have added hugely to the enhancement of our sporting facilities and the experiences they offer, providing much-needed changing rooms, sports offices and viewing spaces for spectators. Funding for the pavilions was provided by a partnership between the school and donors. Naming rights of both of these Pavilions are still available.
One & All Club Sports Pavilion
It is planned to convert the current One & All Conference Room into a Sports Pavilion, overlooking the Wayne Joubert Field, with the skyline of Sandton City in the background. The new One & All Sports Pavilion will provide improved changing rooms and a viewing deck.
Thandulwazi Maths & Science Academy
St Stithians College provides the facilities for, and administration of, the Academy’s programmes. The operating costs of the Academy are generously funded by corporate and private donors. The growth of the Academy’s activities creates the opportunity for increased donor funding. The non-profit and black empowerment credentials of the Thandulwazi Trust enable tax savings and the accumulation of BEE points.
