Established in 1978 the Nelson College Trust Foundation is an independent body established to ensure the long-term sustainability of Nelson College, committed to providing exceptional opportunities and support for the next generation of students.

By donating to the Nelson College Trust Foundation, you will be part of the journey to creating a legacy of educational excellence; providing facilities and opportunities beyond the basic education funded by central government. As a donor you select how you want to help students at Nelson College by contributing to one or more specific endowment funds within the Trust Foundation.

The Trust Foundation acknowledges the support it has received in the past from generous donors, Old Boys and other organisations which have benefited all areas of the school, including the Matakitaki Lodge, Te Ara Poutama and the Gibbons Trade Centre; as well as a wide range of co-curricular opportunities across the arts and sport.

For more information around donations please contact the Trust Foundation Secretary – Lucy Jackson via email at or phone +64 03 5483099.
