Moore College values your financial support and partnership with us. In fact, without it we wouldn’t be able to do many of the things we currently do to support faculty development, our scholarship program, and the replacement of John Chapman House to accommodate many of our single and married students. We’ve seen God’s goodness in the faithfulness of our supporters who pray and give in an ongoing way. This has included substantial gifts (including bequests) to the College for specific projects. If you’d like to discuss areas of current need, please contact the Moore College Foundation on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or by email at Foundation@moore.edu.au.
Note that gifts $2 and over towards the College’s purposes are tax deductible.
You can donate via credit card by choosing one of the below options, and you can also donate via Direct Deposit or Cheque.
This gift will allow the College to allocate the funds to the most urgent funding priorities, which include Student Scholarships and the need for new student accommodation to replace John Chapman House.
While we continue to have needs for the funding, maintenance, repair and development of our varied property portfolio, our major focus for the next two years will be our Capital Campaign. We hope to raise $20 million to replace John Chapman House with modern accommodation for single and married students.
The International Student Fund offers postgraduate and undergraduate scholarships for the growing need for global church leaders. The majority of international students who join us at Moore return to varied ministries in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America, primarily as preachers or missionaries.
The fund was founded in 2020 due to a donation from a family supportive of Moore College and university ministry. It seeks to support international students to attend Moore College who have been involved in Christian ministry (including AFES), and who are seeking further theological education to equip them for ministry and leadership.
The Overseas DBT Scholarship program provides 75% of the fees payable for each successful recipient for the 8 subjects within the Diploma of Biblical Theology. Recipients must be overseas students not resident in Australia, engaging in ministry in their home country, or preparing for a specific ministry role.
If donating via Direct Deposit, include your name and the fund in the description box. Please also advise the College by contacting the Financial Controller Leanne Veitch on +61 (0)2 9577 9864 or by email at email@example.com so a receipt can be issued.

Moore College Foundation
1 King St
We have been blessed through the bequests of a number of supporters over the years. Major gifts at the end of life have been of great importance to the College. In fact, Moore College began as the result of a bequest. When Thomas Moore passed away in 1840, he gifted a large portion of his estate to the establishment of a theological college in Sydney. Moore Theological College was opened in 1856 with three students and one tutor. Since then, more than 6,000 students have graduated from accredited courses and now over 5,000 students are studying Moore College courses in over 50 different countries. 180 years after this initial bequest, we’d like to ask you to prayerfully consider joining this important ministry through making your own bequest to Moore College. If you wish to consider this as a way to support the work it would be good for you to have a conversation with the Moore College Foundation before adding Moore College to your will. In this way, we could help you to identify how you would like to make the gift and for what purpose.
If you would like to register with the College in making your bequest please contact the Moore College Foundation on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or email Foundation@moore.edu.au.
The suggested wording for bequests follows. Note that these words may be varied and made more specific depending on the wishes of the donor. If doing so, it would be good to have someone check the wording with the Moore College Foundation if in any doubt.
I give *either the sum of …………………. (words or figures for a $ amount), or ………………………. (words or figures for a %) percentage of my estate, to Moore Theological College Council for the general purposes (or specific purpose) of the college, and I declare that the receipt of the treasurer of the College Council shall be a full and sufficient discharge to the executor.
*if the gift is of shares or real property or art work then sufficient words to identify same should be substituted.
For any further information on how you can support financially please contact the Moore College Foundation on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or email Foundation@moore.edu.au.
You can also download the below resource to have information on bequests to Moore College in an easy to print format.
As you support Moore College through financial donations, we’d like to keep you informed of what God’s doing through the ministry of the College. Please take the opportunity to read our latest edition of our quarterly publication Moore Matters and our latest Annual Report.
Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Prayer Support Group
The Prayer Support Group is a group of women from all over Sydney that meets together to pray for the needs of the College, its faculty, students and staff. We are always looking for new women to join us as we express our dependence on God for all things. It is a joy to hear about how God is working in the lives of our students and their families and to find out firsthand how we can best pray for college and its faculty, students and staff. See when the next Prayer Support Group is on.
Men’s Prayer Breakfasts
Twice a year, Moore College also runs a prayer breakfast for men. It is an opportunity to fellowship over breakfast, hear from a speaker, and pray for the needs for the College. We want to invite all men to come along and pray for the faculty, students and staff. See when the next Men’s Prayer Breakfast is on.
Moore College knows the importance and imperative of prayer to God’s work at the college. The College has a number of ongoing ways by which prayer and praise points are circulated for prayer supporters to use for their individual or group prayers, including through PrayerMate. A Quarterly Prayer Bulletin publication is produced which you can receive by email.
