Formed in 1990, The Korowa Foundation Limited aims to preserve and enrich the ideals established by the School through a range of fundraising initiatives across the entire Korowa Community.
These activities support ongoing major capital works projects, Scholarships and Bursaries as well as ensuring high-quality educational, sports and arts resources are available to all students. To date, the Korowa Foundation has assisted the School to raise significant additional funding to improve the School experience of Korowa students.

These generous financial contributions provide ongoing support of initiatives not covered by School fees or Government funding. The School must constantly evolve to keep pace with a changing world and demanding educational environment and many of the present facilities in the School have been made possible by the philanthropic generosity of the past Korowa community.
