99 Campaign


A solitary balloon blowing gently in the wind is not enough to fill the sky.
But 99 balloons could give a generation the voice it needs, to make a real difference and inspire hope for a better world…

At a time when many are struggling to find financial resources to meet everyday needs, we recognise that a little help can go a long way

Maritzburg College is 160 years old, and current boys are benefitting from the fruit of many years of hard work, commitment and contributions from generations of old boys. Our facilities are world class and have largely been developed and funded from parents, teachers and old boys who have given “over and above“ over many years.

This is a journey of growth that we want to continue for College. We would like to invite all our parents and friends of College to join the “99 club“ by contributing just R99 per month, which will be channelled through the Maritzburg College Foundation. These funds will be donated directly to the school towards new capital projects and facilities to enable the school to continue to build for future generations.

As a member of the 99 Club, you will be invited to regular social events on campus, in partnership
with our Goldstones Club, to recognise our donors and have a chance to network and meet with others
in the #redblackwhite College Community. In addition, we will add you to our Foundation donor database and you will receive regular updates on initiatives for which the funding is being used.  Please note that Section 18A certificates will be issued to all donors to allow for tax deductions.

Campaign Progress

The first debit order and initial contribution to the 99-club was made by a parent, Paula Beauclerk, and since then we have had large number of people from our College Community join the initiative.

To date we have raised over R232,000. These funds have been used to assist the school in many ways including:

  • Extension of overflow parking on the terraces
  • Relocation of the tractors to beautify the school entrance
  • Sanding and re-varnishing of all school desks and modifying some of the double desks to singles.
  • The upgrade and installation of roofing in the second form quad
  • Installation of air conditioners for classrooms in Q&S Block
  • Wi-Fi in the Kent Pavilion
  • Extra seating on Goldstones and Papes
  • New tents for functions and events

Once additional funds have accumulated, we will be able to tackle larger projects as well.
