The McNeill Society

McNeill Society logo

From its beginnings in 1935, bequests and other philanthropic gifts have enabled the College to move forward and adapt to changing needs by providing students with new facilities and bursaries.

The McNeill Society was established by the St Joseph’s College Foundation to recognize and honour those who financially support the College. It enables us to thank and recognize – privately or publicly – those for their generosity. Whether in the form of a living gift or a bequest to the College, our donors know their actions transform lives.

Often St Joseph’s College is not able to thank a donor in their lifetime and The McNeill Society allows us to express our gratitude in the here and now. Our hope is that it will also encourage others to consider a gift to SJC, during their life to enable them to see the impact of their generosity. Each gift is part of a child’s future and success.

The McNeill Society has been named after John McNeill (SJC 1935 – 1937). A foundation student during the first three years of the College’s existence, John was one of the original House captains and took full part in all school activities.

Members will be listed in/on the College’s Bequest Register/Honour Board and other publications, receive a membership pin and be invited to McNeill Society Functions. There are no membership fees or regulations. Membership can be anonymous if preferred.

The McNeill Society

“The reason I have for making a bequest to St Joseph’s and for joining the McNeill Society is simple.
I believe every boy should have the opportunity of a St Joseph’s education and I want to continue to be part of that story going forward” - Kevin Costa, SJOCA 1961 & Foundation Member
