Giving at Tauranga Boys' College

"E hara taku toa i te toa taki tahi, he toa takitini"

My strength is not as an individual, but as a collective

 

There are many ways you can give to Tauranga Boys' College, with each having a different, but universally positive impact on the College and our students.

Tauranga Boy’s College has many proud philanthropic supporters, and we are aware there are many more who wish to give back to 'their College', 'their Turangawaewae'...  With this in mind, we have been investing in creating platforms to make this easier, including upgrading our website, implementing online donation options, and creation of associated collateral amongst other projects.

We are grateful for the generosity shown each year by individuals, families and businesses connected to the College, whose support helps us to provide quality educational opportunities, with buildings and facilities for our current students, and will ensure future generations can enjoy an equally high standard of education at Tauranga Boys' College.
