About

The Cardo Foundation was established in 2016 to grow and sustain a philanthropic culture within the Citipointe Christian College community, to help future-proof the ability of the College to continue providing an excellent Christian education for students.

The Foundation, which oversees the College’s fundraising program, is presided over by the Board of Directors of its Trustee company, Citipointe Christian College Foundation Limited. The members of this Board are appointed by the College Board which ensures accountable management of funds held by the Cardo Foundation and appropriate governance.

Through the generosity of the College community the Foundation has been instrumental in raising funds for the Equity Scholarship Fund as its first project.

Vision & Mission

The Cardo Foundation exists to ensure future generations of Citipointe students enjoy an excellent education in continually improving facilities, and to provide a Citipointe Christian College education to students who would otherwise be unable to attend, through the Equity Scholarship Fund.

The Foundation is the organisation through which philanthropic financial support for the school is collected, and funds distributed.

Building Fund

Provides for ongoing capital works projects and acquisitions in support of the College Master Plan, and ensures the availability of first class facilities.

Scholarship Fund

Provides scholarships and bursaries for students whose presence will add to the richness and diversity of the student body, and for those whose family financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from attending the College.

ALUMNI HAVE ENROLLED THEIR CHILDREN AT CITIPOINTE

From a grateful mum

“For my daughter to attend Citipointe Christian College means the world to me. It is such a great opportunity not only for her to learn what is taught in other schools but to learn about the Christian perspective as well. This is something I could never give to her. My prayers were answered and now she is attending the school, it is a blessing and we are so very happy and grateful for this opportunity. Thank you very much.”

Citipointe Parent

From a grateful student

“I thank God every day that I get to go to this amazing school. I love that the teachers and staff care about my future and give extra help when I need it. It makes me really happy that I can talk about God with my friends openly without feeling pressured. 

I can honestly say I feel blessed that I get to come here.”

Inaugural Scholarship Recipient

From a father’s heart

“As a Christian parent, it means everything to me, to now have my daughter attend Citipointe Christian College.”

“Through the selfless generosity of others, God answered my prayer. Because of their giving my daughter can attend a school offering so many more opportunities and resources. She is able to be surrounded and supported by people who share her faith and she is able to learn in a safe, loving environment.”

“… finding out that God paved the way for my daughter to attend Citipointe Christian College through the love of others’ giving was a milestone in my testimony.”

Every drop creates a ripple.

BEQUESTS

Making a bequest to Citipointe Christian College allows you to retain the use and enjoyment of your assets during your lifetime but still provide a valuable gift to the College in the future.

Your Solicitor will be able to advise as to the most appropriate way for you to include a bequest to Cardo Foundation in support of Citipointe Christian College when drafting your will. If you have already made your will, you can add a codicil to include the Foundation - a simple and inexpensive process.

I was overwhelmed by your support on the Day of Giving during last year’s appeal. Over $60,000 was raised on the day and together with the giving from staff and the wider community throughout the year we raised over $150,000 toward our equity endowment fund. Due to this substantial generosity, the Board was able to offer the first equity scholarship to a wonderful young person who never imagined they could be a student at the College. Thank you for helping us achieve this goal and making such a difference in the life of this young person and their family – we could not have done it without you.

A special thank you to the donors who matched the gifts on the day. Together we were able to provide a gift of immediate benefit and also build a corpus of funds which can keep on giving in the future. Our target is to raise sufficient funds over the next five years to provide six perpetual equity scholarships.
