The Bible College SA Foundation is a trust fund that has been established for the purpose of receiving tax deductible donations from supporters of Bible College SA. It distributes these funds according to Australian Taxation Office guidelines and for the educational program of Bible College SA as an affiliate member of the Australian College of Theology.

The Need

Bible College SA is an interdenominational College that does not receive financial support from any governments or denominations. We therefore rely on God's provision through the generosity of our many friends and partners. The Bible College SA Foundation is a tax effective way for regular donors to support our ministry.


How donations are used

The courses offered on campus at Bible College SA are accredited by the Australian College of Theology - Australia's oldest and largest theological education body - to ensure that our qualifications have high standards and broad recognition. Tax deductible donations received by the Foundation are used to offset the cost of offering the Australian College of Theology courses. Primarily, they go towards the salaries of our faculty and support staff, and to our direct support costs.


Foundation Trustees

The Trustees of the Foundation fund are Mr Bill Dickson (Vice President, College Council), Mr Robin Genders (former Treasurer, College Council), Rev Dr Tim Patrick (Principal) and Mr Graeme Perrin (Chartered Accountant).


Who can be a Foundation Partner

Bible College SA welcomes the participation of all who have an interest in supporting our ministry. The Foundation is intended for those who wish to become full partners in our work by undertaking to pray regularly for the ministry of the College and making annual donations of $1,000 or more.
