Who We Are

Our Somerville House Foundation was launched in 1984 by a group of interested parents with a mutual passion and belief in the transformative power of education. 

Now celebrating our 35th year of supporting the financial security and growth of Somerville House, our Foundation operates as a company limited by guarantee and is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission.

We operate collaboratively with the School under the requirements of the Corporations Act, with a professional Board of Directors and impressive volunteer involvement. The Board and its three Committees have a diverse mix of skills and experience, and great passion for our cause.
