Goldstones Project

Overview

Maritzburg College together with the College Foundation are embarking on an exciting landmark development on our hallowed Goldstones

This project will see the renovation of the old scoreboard and ablution facilities, as well as the addition of a state-of-the-art First Aid centre, with a function room above looking onto both Pape’s Astro and Goldstones. In addition, the existing home change room in the Kent Pavilion will be increased in size and functionality for our teams.

Maritzburg College continues to progress in many areas, with an ever-increasing number of sporting teams participating across our many different sporting codes every weekend. This trend does come with its own challenges as the school’s facilities need to cater for these increasing numbers.

In order to finance our world-class facilities, we are giving everyone who has played sport on Goldstones (Athletics, Rugby, Cricket) or represented the First Aid team, the opportunity to have their name on a wall in the famous Goldstones change room, highlighting their ‘year/team/sport’. Names will be grouped according to the level of contribution R1000 – RED, R5000 – BLACK and R10 000 – WHITE). 

We are happy to accept debit orders for a longer-term investment (100MillionforCollege brochure) as well as larger donations. 

An amount of R250 000 will secure a donor internal naming rights of the First Aid facility or the Goldstones change room (the functions room has been taken by a major donor already). In addition, there will be lockers built in the Goldstones change room that can be named after teams who raise a minimum of R20 000. 

Section 18A certificates will be issued to all donors to allow for tax deductions.

Our goal is to complete the project in time for the end of the rugby season this year. Of course it would be really great to reach our target by this year’s Reunion in May as our Old Boys celebrate 125 years.
