Radford Foundation

The Foundation was established to support the long-term advancement and development of the College’s educational programs and facilities, which are available to all students to help them reach their true potential.

The Foundation works closely alongside the College through the Radford College Board and the Principal. The Foundation is managed by a dedicated professional Board supported by the Foundation Administrator, Cate McDonald​, who can be contacted on 02 6162 6293 or foundation@radford.act.edu.au

Whilst the disruption of the past few years presented many challenges, the Foundation was proud to be part of a community that banded together to continually deliver quality education to our students through such an uncertain period of time.

It was with this that the Foundation, whose principal purpose is to support education at the College, provided another full two-year scholarship for a student commencing Year 11 in 2021.

You can watch the story of our inaugural scholarship recipient, Quoc Le, here. The Foundation Directors and the College were proud to witness Quoc graduate with the Class of 2020.

The College is currently building a new sports precinct, which will include a new Multi-Function Hall with flexible interior between the College’s two ovals, six outdoor courts with lights and spectator seating, changerooms, toilets, storage space and relocated car parking.

An incredibly generous $4 million donation from the Boorer family to the Radford Foundation’s Building Fund will see the establishment of a world-class Cricket Centre with eight nets and administrative spaces. The centre will be designed to allow use by other sports and the wider school community.

In 2022, the Foundation celebrated its five-year anniversary and shared our achievements with the Radford community with a publication "Radford Foundation Celebrates Five Years".
