Our Supporters in Asia Pacific

There are 285 St Catharine's Members across the Asia Pacific region. 17.1% of our Members living in these areas have chosen to give to the College.  

A number of Members have also chosen to support the College through their estate planning. Leaving a gift to the College in your will can be one of the most meaningful ways to support St Catharine's. The College's Woodlark Society was introduced to recognise this generosity. To find out more, please contact us.

It will be the second 1473 Foundation Gala to be held in the Asia Pacific region to recognise the generosity of our major donors in the area. This follows the very successful event in Hong Kong in 2016. We are grateful to a number of our Members who are supporting the dinner.
