The Foundation supplements school funding through tax-deductible philanthropic support from the school community and private sector for projects that enhance opportunities and support for students.

To commemorate the opening of the Kurilpa Building, the State High Foundation is providing an exciting opportunity for students and staff (past and present) along with other supporters of Brisbane State High, to recognise their achievements and personal connection to our great School’s history, through commemorative diamond-shaped plaques.
Your tax-deductible donation, to the State High Foundation, will secure a commemorative diamond-shaped plaque which will be permanently displayed in the Kurilpa Concourse (ground floor of the Kurilpa Building).
Commemorative diamonds are available in a range of sizes to suit individuals, families and corporations and can be secured for as little as $250.
The diamond brochure (PDF, 273 KB) outlines everything you need to know about purchasing a diamond plaque.
