Foundation History

A.B. Paterson College holds dear to the Mission of ‘challenging the individual to achieve, and to act with purpose and character’ and in so doing supports the development of many young people each and every year. 

From humble beginnings in 1991, the College has established itself as a leading educational institution in Queensland through the financial support and generosity of many families. Philanthropy is at the very heart of A.B. Paterson College’s history, success and values. Our donors have given so generously because they knew that their actions would transform lives and because they shared a personal mission to support the next generation of leaders.

Our students are widely recognised for their philanthropic hearts, their positive contributions to society, their commitment to excellence, and their leadership. Our Old Collegians are contributing knowledge, leading and supporting others in all areas of society using their talents and the moral compass developed at the College for the betterment of others in business, law, politics, the arts, medicine, science and technology, sport and more.

As stated by Mary Beard, “the results of Philanthropy are always beyond calculation”. Your gift is part of their success and will ensure opportunity for our students for years to come.

Foundation History:

Founded in 2018, The A.B. Paterson College Foundation aims to preserve, enrich and support the Mission and Values of A.B. Paterson College through:

  • Active leadership within the community;
  • The generation of the financial resources to enable the realisation of the College’s Masterplan; and
  • Support of Scholarships for both staff and students.

Under the leadership of our Chairman, Mr Ed Klimowicz, the newly established Foundation seeks the support of members of the College community and those in society who are committed to improving the future for our next generation.

In so doing, we gratefully acknowledge those past and present students and families who have given generously to the College since 1991 and provided support for the many buildings and facilities that our students enjoy today.
