  • Annual Fund
  • Overview

    We all play a critical role in shaping the future of all our students.  Aberdeen Hall is built upon a culture of philanthropy. Our philanthropic community has demonstrated what amazing progress we can accomplish in a short amount of time to enhance the educational opportunities for all Aberdeen Hall students.

    Tuition fees only cover operating costs such as salaries, supplies, and fundamental maintenance. A truly great school must rely on support over and above fees if it hopes to maintain a level of excellence and innovation in education. The Annual fund provides Aberdeen Hall with the opportunity to offer program enhancements, purchase new equipment and technology, increase scholarship and bursary options for existing and future students, and improve our exceptional facilities.

  • Planned Giving
  • What is a planned gift?

    Planned gifts allow you to make a meaningful donation today that will leave a lasting impact for tomorrow.

    You can include Aberdeen Hall in your estate plans through bequests, charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. Consider the following options as you begin to plan for your future legacy.

    Bequests: This gift, made through your will, is the most common type of planned gift. Arranged today, a bequest is not paid to Aberdeen Hall until after your death. You can give a specified sum, or property, or a percentage of your estate.

    Life Insurance: A gift of life insurance is a simple and thoughtful way to make a gift to Aberdeen Hall. Insurance allows you to make a modest gift now for a significant gift in the future.

    Charitable Gift Annuities: This is the gift that keeps on giving. Charitable gift annuities enable you to make an immediate gift to the School and receive guaranteed income for life.

    Charitable Remainder Trusts and Gifts of Residual Interest: This gift is invested to give you an ongoing income with the capital going to Aberdeen Hall upon death. Residual interest gifts allow you to donate the asset today (residence, art, investment property) and enjoy the use of it for the rest of your life with the gift going to Aberdeen Hall upon death.

    Also known as legacy gifts, they provide future support for areas of Aberdeen hall most important to you, and often result in a larger gift than you thought possible.

    Potential benefits:

    • Lifetime income for you or another beneficiary
    • Immediate tax relief
    • Turn low-yielding assets into a higher income stream
    • Reduce estate taxes
    • Meaningful legacy to Aberdeen Hall

    How we can help

    Significant gifts, such as a bequest of life insurance, can meaningfully transform Aberdeen Hall’s future. But they require considerable planning. Family is involved. Advisers should be consulted. Timing and tax considerations are crucial. We can work with you, your family and advisers on a confidential basis to ensure your legacy.

  • Endowment
  • Endowment – Building a Legacy

    An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding held in an interest bearing investment with only the interest being spent.  When an endowment fund is established, a permanent legacy of support is created by the donor for Aberdeen Hall.  A robust endowment contributes to the long-term sustainability of the School and significantly enhancing the student experience.  

    Financial Assistance

    Aberdeen Hall strives to maintain diversity in our school population. Today, 13% of students receive some form of financial assistance and our goal is to continue to increase the opportunities for mission-appropriate students.  The inclusion of these deserving students, who could not otherwise access an Aberdeen Hall education, provides a superior experience for all. Endowed scholarship funds make the Scholarship and Bursaries Programme robust and sustainable.  

    Enhanced Programming

    Academic excellence and innovation are hallmarks of Aberdeen Hall. Building endowed funds which support ongoing renewal of top-of-the-line equipment and exceptional learning resources will ensure the best educational experience possible.  

    Named Funds

    Would you like to commemorate a special teacher, family member or classmate? A named, endowed fund allows donors to recognize the special role Aberdeen Hall has played in their lives. The stories about the funds’ creation are often poignant and compelling. Perhaps you are a parent who wishes to memorialize a family member or friend. Each endowed gift to Aberdeen Hall provides a unique legacy.

    The minimum gift to endow a scholarship or prize fund is $100,000. Please contact Sean Ayers, Director of Development Office at 250-491-1270 Ext. 138 or
