Havergal Philanthropy Investing in Excellence

As an independent school and registered charity, Havergal relies on philanthropy as an important source of financial support to ensure our tradition of excellence in girls’ education. The successful completion of our recent Limitless Campaign is an example of the impact the community can have on our school. From one-time donations to ongoing commitments, all gifts have an important impact on the advancement of Havergal’s mission, ensuring our students have an exceptional experience. Priority areas are identified each year and donors designate which areas they would like to support. Donors also have the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to a particular initiative, such as financial aid, programs that enhance the student experience and investments in top-notch facilities. Following the completion of the Limitless Campaign , this year we invite you to learn about several new philanthropic opportunities that align with the school’s Strategic Direction, Havergal 2020+: Future-Proofing the Next Generation . Your gift makes an impact on our students and we hope this Guide to Giving helps you decide where to lend your support.

These gifts can be made as multi-year commitments (pledges) and provide a sustainable funding source for your area of interest. Can I include Havergal in my estate plan? Each year Havergal is privileged to receive realized planned gifts from our community in the form of estate gifts and gifts of insurance. These gifts are an expression of the passion our donors have for our school and the timelessness of our mission. How much should I donate? We ask that you consider a gift that is right for you and your family; your participation in our donor community is what matters most. Donations of any size, at the level that you are comfortable, are truly valued and deeply appreciated. Can I make a monthly commitment? Many donors find it convenient to donate monthly, with automatically withdrawn payments. To choose this option, simply select “monthly donation” when you donate online or on your reply form. How will I know that my donation is making an impact?
