In March 2007 St. Stephen's Girls' College established the St. Stephen's Girls' College Charitable Trust to support the St. Stephen's Girls’ College Council to advance the school objectives of providing a first rate local education in the Christian faith. The St. Stephen's Girls' College Charitable Trust supports the affiliated schools of St. Stephen's Girls' College, St. Stephen's Girls' Primary School and St. Stephen's Girls' College Kindergarten.
