Name: Moore Theological College
BSB: 032 016
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 Trevor Cairney as the Head of 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 Head of Foundation at the College on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or email FoundationHead@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 Head of 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 Head of Foundation at the College on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or email FoundationHead@moore.edu.au.

Finding the funds to attend College full-time is challenging. Many need to obtain varied forms of support to make it possible. Some students may have already built a financial support base before coming to College when they did an MTS/AFES apprenticeship, others perhaps not. We’d like to encourage and support our students to gain support of this type while at college. This individual fundraising by the student, will be administered with the security of the Moore College accounts system, and with the supervision and support of the Moore College Foundation.
We’d like to encourage this both for former MTS and AFES apprentices as well as students new to this form of support. As well as helping students to gain support, we’re aware that many full-time ministry roles require some element of fundraising. So, they’ll be learning helpful skills for a lifetime of ministry.
All students currently enrolled in an on campus accredited Moore College course are entitled to apply for a Student Support Fund Account.
All Moore College scholarship recipients are required to open a Student Support Fund Account as well and they are strongly encouraged to raise financial support for their time at College instead of relying just on scholarships, paid work, FEE-Help, etc.
Future students can register for a Student Support Fund Account once they have been accepted into an on campus accredited Moore College course. They can open the accounts and start taking donations once their enrolment application has been accepted. However, no funds will be transferred out of their accounts until after the census date for their first term at College. College will retain all funds paid into their Student Support Fund Account if they don’t commence studying at College after their enrolment, and this will be distributed to other students.
Tax Deductible Status
We’re currently seeking advice as to whether the Student Support Fund Accounts might be eligible to receive Deductible Gift Recipient status. It’s worth noting that even if these accounts do receive Deductible Gift Recipient status, donations to students from their family members will not be tax deductible.
We will not charge any administration charge for setting up or maintaining Student Support Fund Accounts for eligible students. We will not charge any administration fee for payments made into the Student Support Fund Accounts either. However, there is a third-party transaction processing fee for payments made via credit/debit card on the Student Support Fund Accounts web pages, and these will be deducted from the linked Student Support Fund Accounts.
We currently receive a charge of 1.40% + 30c per domestic Visa/Mastercard transactions, 1.75% + 30c per domestic Amex transactions and 2.90% + 30c for international card transactions that come through our website. Direct deposits don’t incur any charge, and these should be made into the main College bank account with the name of the student as part of the description in order to be applied to the correct Student Support Fund Account.
The funds from the Student Support Fund Accounts are available for use for living and educational expenses such as: food, accommodation, books and travel. This will be based on trust because we don’t require receipts to be reimbursed like an expense account. Rather, students can speak directly to Moore College Foundation staff if they wish to withdraw a large amount at any one time for expenses other than normal day-to-day living expenses.
Means of Communication
All Student Support Fund Account holders are eligible to have a web page on the Moore College website set up for them, with their photo and some simple details of who they are and why they’re at College. Students need to contact the Moore College Foundation Department to set these up. These pages will also feature donation forms connected to the General Accounting Units for the specific Student Support Fund Accounts.
Students can choose to share their web page URLs with their supporter bases. All donations through these web pages will be treated as above. These web pages can be found by using the exact URL or by searching the name of the student in the search bar in the Moore College website. Alternatively, students can give the main College bank account details to supporters and ask them to include the name of the student as part of the description.
Receipts will be issued to donors by the Moore College Foundation Department. Contact details and giving history of donors will be stored by Moore College.
Statements will be issued to Student Support Fund Account holders by the Moore College Finance Department. They will be issued once per month and will include details on donations received, payments transferred out, and the remaining balance in the account.
Means & Frequency of Distribution
Monthly payments will be made directly into the Student Support Fund Account holder’s bank account. This will be done by the Moore College Finance Department and bank account details will be stored by them.
You can find the student you wish to support by simply typing their full name in the search bar of this website. If you are not able to find the student you wish to support, then please contact our Head of Foundation on +61 (0)2 9577 9900 or email@example.com.
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.
