The ONU are dedicated to support many initiatives of the College, the Tongan Scholarship (means tested), Centennial Trust & Mental Health Fund.

ONU Centennial Trust
The ONU Centennial Trust was establish by the ONU in 1995 to celebrate its Centenary Year. The first endowment was awarded in 1996 and over the past 20 years, it has awarded in excess of $150,000 to 29 young Old Boys covering all fields of endeavour and interest.

Donations to the Trust are not normally tax deductible, with the following exceptions:

  1. If the donation is made for business purposes such as corporate sponsorship under Section 8 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, the donor would be able to establish commercial reason for making the donation and tax deductibility may be available;
  2. In addition, under certain circumstances, donations made through a family trust may be tax deductible.

Should you consider that tax deductibility might apply, you should seek expert advice through your tax advisor.

ONU Mental Health Fund
The ONU Mental Health Fund was set up to provide financial support for the treatment of Mental Health issues for members of the ONU family. This fund is not tax deductible.

ONU Tongan Scholarship (means tested)
The ONU Tongan Scholarship is named to recognise and celebrate the long standing relationship between the College and the Kingdom of Tonga. Much of the funds for this means tested Scholarship continue to be provided by the ONU and Old Boys generally and it is for this reason that it is designated an ONU means tested Scholarship. This fund is not tax deductible.
