Frequently Answered Questions

List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Annual Fund?

    The Annual Fund is a fundraising program that asks parents, grandparents, employees, alumnae, and their families for financial contributions to provide learning resources and student financial aid not funded through the annual operating budget.
  • How much do donors typically give?

    The Annual Fund’s success comes from both large donors and a significant number of people whose gifts may seem small but together make a big difference. We hope that you will make Balmoral Hall School a priority for your charitable giving by making a gift that feels right to you.
  • Are donations tax-deductible?

    Yes. As a registered charity, Balmoral Hall School issues tax receipts. Gifts made between January 1 and December 31 are eligible for a yearly tax receipt, which reduces the amount of tax you may need to pay the government.
  • How can families participate?

    You can use a credit card or set up an automatic bank withdrawal using our online donation form. Cheques payable to Balmoral Hall School can be mailed to the Philanthropy office or you can donate securities. If you prefer, call (204) 784-1615 to arrange a donation by phone.
  • What is the easiest way to give?

    Monthly! Set it and forget it. You can spread out your gift over time by setting up a recurring donation that gets automatically processed every month. This can be done using the online donation form, or by calling (204) 784-1615.
  • When does the campaign end?

    The annual giving campaign runs each school year, from July 1 to June 30. Our goal for this fundraising program is to raise the level of participation as close to 100% as possible before June 30. Donating early means your contributions can be put to work right away!
  • How will my gift be recognized?

    Balmoral Hall School’s Annual Review is published in the fall and includes the names of donors by giving club unless anonymity is requested. Once you have donated to four or more consecutive annual giving campaigns, your name is also listed on the donor wall at the entrance of Benidickson Centre for Arts & Design. 

2021–2022 Priorities & Wish List

Tuition covers Balmoral Hall School’s operating costs, including teacher salaries, learning resources, and facility maintenance. An enriched Balmoral Hall experience is only possible with the strong financial support of our community, including parents, alumnae and their families, grandparents, employees, and friends.
 
In many ways, our mission is now more important than ever — preparing girls to excel, to reach, to lead, and to care. 

All gifts of any amount are appreciated and valued. If you are in a position to help, please consider a donation.

  • Financial Aid Fund


    Donations to the Financial Aid Fund allow students to attend Balmoral Hall School who otherwise could not afford to do so. Currently, 1 in 5 students is supported by financial aid and bursaries. We expect this need to increase in the coming months as families continue to experience the ongoing impacts of the pandemic.
  • Girls of Promise Endowment Fund


    Every year, our endowment generates income used to provide tuition support and ensures that a Balmoral Hall education is within reach for all girls of promise. Your donation will provide long-term funding for these bursaries. Visit the Endowment page for more details.
  • Class Bursary Funds


    Graduates have started a beautiful new tradition. They raise money to ensure a bursary will help a student who follows in their footsteps. Visit the Endowment page to see these legacy gifts being presented by the Classes of 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 to BH Foundation. We invite you to honour a Balmoral Hall graduate by donating to her fund!
