In addition to philanthropic gifts and bequests, corporate sponsorship plays an important role in supporting the work of the Foundation.
Funds raised each year through our generous sponsors help underwrite a number of events and activities across the wider Wesley community and provide significant exposure for sponsors.
Sponsors are provided with a suite of benefits and opportunities to engage with our College community and are highlighted in each edition of the Lion magazine that is mailed to almost 25,000 households including current and future parents, alumni and friends of the College. They receive tables at every Foundation event, Annual Gala Dinner, preferential booking rights, networking opportunities, sponsor acknowledgement events and links to their websites.
'Cox Architecture supports the Wesley Foundation as it provides both strong support for the College, and a series of highlight events.
