We praise and thank God for our supporters. Your gifts are such an encouragement to us, and more importantly, to the work we do here in teaching the Bible and, under God, preparing the next generation of gospel workers.

Help us prepare, every student, every day, every year!  If you are in a position to assist, we’d love to hear from you.

1. Building and Maintenance Fund (Tax Deductible): The SMBC Building and Maintenance Fund helps improve and maintain our educational facilities across the Croydon campus and Roberts-Dale campus enhancing both teaching, learning, and community experiences as we prepare our students for God’s mission to the world.

2. General Fund: Donations to the General Fund are used where needed most in the general operations of the College. Your funding support here is always important for us.

3. SMBC Australian Scholarship Foundation Ltd (Tax Deductible): Whilst we do all we can to keep costs to a minimum, the Australian Scholarship Foundation Limited facilitates the financial support of our students who are Australian citizens or permanent residents.  It aims to provide greater financial support and opportunities for future harvest workers to come to SMBC to be supported and trained and prepared to reach the lost with the gospel.

As a tax-deductible foundation, your gifts can be used even more effectively for supporting SMBC students or The Bridge Gap Year program students in their foundational ministry and mission preparation.  Donations to the SMBC Australian Scholarship Foundation are pooled, students then apply to access for financial support. You can be providing for the training of a future pastor!

If you would like your gift to go to the support of a specific student, after you have made your online donation, please email with the name of the student that you wish to financially support.

Under the terms of the SMBC Australian Scholarship Foundation Ltd approved by the Australian Taxation Office, the mother & father of a student are not able to receive a tax-deductible donation to financially support their child. Given this if you would still like to make a contribution to financially support your child, please contact us by email to

4.100 for 100 Student Scholarship Program: Our aim is to provide significant gospel impact through planting and better equipping churches with trained national pastors and gospel workers. In particular we seek, with your help, to train overseas people at SMBC only where there is no access to quality theological education in their local context.  We marked the milestone of our Centenary year in 2016, with our vision to prepare one overseas student for each year SMBC has been in service.  The 100 for 100 program  is unique in that we are working alongside SMBC graduates overseas ( and their mission agencies) to endorse and identify potential students in their communities who exhibit potential for future church leadership and pastoral roles.

Find out more about the 100 for 100 Program, including prospectus and videos here


5. Foundation Library Trust (Tax Deductible): Your donation will enable SMBC's Kerr Library to continue to provide essential resources for our students.

6. Foundation Building and Maintenance Trust (Tax deductible): Donations to this trust within the SMBC Foundation also assist us with essential building development and maintenance of College facilities.

7. Foundation General Trust: Donations to the SMBC Foundation General Trust are used where needed most to support the objectives of the SMBC Foundation in facilitating student tuition, library requirements, or property and maintenance projects.

8. Endowment Fund: The SMBC Endowment Fund is a  fund of investments that aims to generate an ongoing income stream of support for Sydney Missionary & Bible College in years to come. More details here.

Bequest Support

Bequest support is a way that you can help SMBC without stretching your budget.  It is a wonderful and lasting contribution for the work of the gospel and can be made by leaving a bequest to Sydney Missionary and Bible College in your will.

Please prayerfully consider this, and If you feel comfortable discussing your plans confidentially, Derek Brotherson (SMBC Principal) or Greg Swanton (SMBC General Manager) would be delighted to chat and/or meet informally with you. They are best contacted on (02) 9747 4780. We also recommend you talk with your solicitor, who will be able to advise you on all matters relating to your will.  If you don’t have a solicitor, SMBC can put you in touch with an experienced wills solicitor who may be able to assist you.

For all the details please view the  Bequest Information Flyer here  (1.15MBPDF)

It is important to re-emphasise that it must be your own decision to make a bequest to Sydney Missionary and Bible College.


Your solicitor may need the following information:

Full College Name:  Sydney Missionary and Bible College

Address:  43-45 Badminton Road, Croydon NSW 2132 Australia

ABN:  11 000 047 950

Sydney Missionary and Bible College is ‘incorporated’, but is a company limited by guarantee and is governed by a Board of Directors.

Your bequest, no matter how large or how small, will have an ongoing impact for the gospel... for the sake of His Holy Name...

Donating In Memory

A special way to honour a loved one who passes away is by offering family and friends the opportunity to make an 'in memoriam' donation to SMBC to celebrate their life, instead of sending flowers.

Step 1:
