THE FOUNDATION WAS LAUNCHED IN 2002 AS PART OF THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OPENING OF VICTORIA COLLEGE.
The Victoria College Foundation was created to support the ever-changing needs of school life, helping to make our world-class education more accessible to young people from all backgrounds through financial support. The Foundation plays a vital role in supporting bursaries and capital projects that allow the school to continue to expand and enhance its facilities, meeting the needs of our students, the school and its community. In December 2020, the Foundation was re-formed as a Jersey limited company and was included on the Jersey Charities Register (No 412).
The main objectives of the Foundation are to:
- Widen access to the education offered by Victoria College, through the provision of bursaries.
- Advance the education of students at Victoria College by providing financial support for the enhancement of the educational and developmental experience on offer to its students.
Money raised via alumni events and other fund-raising programmes, such as our Foundation Partner initiative, generates funding to facilitate the Foundation's main objectives.
Become a Foundation Partner
Becoming a Foundation Partner with Victoria College creates a strong bond between our school and your organisation. The support provided by Foundation Partners is invaluable to both our students and the school as a whole.
Foundation Partners are welcome to decide their level of support to the school, should it be offering bursary support for one or multiple students, or one-off donations.
Our Foundation Partners often contribute their time and expertise to our student's career development by taking part in our Careers Fairs, Careers Speed Networking event, mock job interviews and more. The Foundation Partnership agreement is an annual contract which may allow the Foundation Partner access to our Graduate 'Keep In Touch' contact database of recently graduated students. Partnerships with the Foundation also bring opportunities for project, event and awards sponsorship.
Our students pride themselves on not only being academically successful, but well-rounded young gentlemen who would be an asset to any organisation, as they begin to build their careers after leaving school.

Leave a Legacy
Bequests to Victoria College have always been fundamental to the future of the College. Importantly, a gift does not need to be large to make an impact. Every contribution makes a difference.
The combination of more minor bequests over time has had a wide-ranging positive impact across many programs that continue to benefit Victoria College students and provide the life-changing gift of a Victoria College education.
The names of those who have left a bequest to Victoria College live on through the lasting benefit their gift means to our boys.
Please get in touch with us at Foundation@vcj.sch.je if you would like more information on leaving a gift in your will.
The Patrons of the Foundation are:
His Excellency Vice Admiral Jeremy Kyd CBE BSc PGDip and The Bailiff of Jersey, Sir Timothy Le Cocq KC.
