Why Join the Old Boys' Association?

The benefits of joining the Maritzburg College Old Boys’ community are both in unifying the OC community – but also in ensuring the continued standards of excellence in the Maritzburg College of today. As the State provides fewer and fewer resources to the school, so it falls on the Old Boys community to bring service and value to our great school and deserving young scholars. 

The Old Boys’ Association also plays an important role in establishing and maintaining professional networks – providing career opportunities and support within a global network of Old Collegians.

Foundation

As a community, the work done by the College Foundation changes lives and shapes futures. The College Foundation operates within a vision to maintain standards of excellence at the school – and to create opportunities for deserving boys to benefit from a College education.

Through strategic fundraising initiatives, the College Foundation maintains the scholarship fund, supports essential capital development projects, and grows existing school projects – making a difference to the College boys of the future.

At the centre of all fundraising efforts is our 100millionforCollege campaign, which aims to create a R100m endowment fund for the school. Through the fund, capital raised will be preserved intact, with the interest generated used to meet pressing financial needs such as scholarships and to improve the school’s extensive infrastructure. Thanks to our legacy donors, every R1 raised is leveraged and matched. Whether as an organisation or individual, there are many ways to get involved with the fine work done by the College Foundation.
