Philanthropy at Carey

Following the retirement of Mack Jones, Director of Philanthropy, the School has undertaken a review of the Advancement program at Carey with the aim of building on the solid foundation of philanthropy at the School.

We are delighted to announce the recent appointment of Stuart Galbraith to the role of Head of Advancement at Carey. Stuart comes to us from St Catherine’s School, Toorak, where he has held a senior leadership position in Development and Community Relations for the past four years. Stuart is a leader with advanced stakeholder, governance and communication skills and has overseen the successful delivery of the philanthropic plans at St Catherine’s.

Prior to taking up the position at St Catherine’s, Stuart was the Community and Corporate Relations Manager at the Centre for Eye Research Australia, which is affiliated to Melbourne University. Stuart also has a wealth of experience from his previous positions in not-for-profit organisations where he has specialised in public relations, fundraising, communications and events.

Stuart is looking forward to joining Carey, meeting our school community and building on the strong culture of giving that has been established at Carey in recent years. We look forward to welcoming him to the Carey community.

I appreciate the number of people in the Carey community who give generously to our school in time, money and endorsement. We are pleased to see the growing number of people who provide financial support to our school to enable an enriched learning environment for our students.

Giving to the School supports programs such as means-tested scholarships including scholarships for indigenous and refugee students, resources for our libraries and continual improvement of our learning facilities. We thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support for the Advancement program at Carey.
