Our mission is to endow donations and provide annual grants to Balmoral Hall School for student bursaries, innovative programming, and campus enhancements to ensure the school is accessible, extraordinary, and financially sustainable for generations to come.  
An endowment is an investment fund set aside for the long-term support of a charity. The principal, your donations, remain invested forever. Only a portion of the income is spent annually and granted for the school to use within the parameters of each fund’s set criteria.
Our dedicated Board of Directors volunteers to build an endowment that revolutionizes education by offering an exceptional bursary program, an innovative curriculum, and a breathtaking campus, empowering students to thrive in a world of endless possibilities.  
Donors give to BH Foundation in one of two ways: by giving unrestricted support to fund bursaries, educational programming, or campus enhancement; or by establishing a named fund as a lasting tribute to friends, family, or former teachers. A named fund may be established through a gift of $50,000 or more which may be contributed over a period of five years. Some donors choose to support during their lifetime, while others make provisions to support through estate gifts as members of Meliora Petens Legacy Society.

The Balmoral Hall School Foundation oversees an endowment of $4.7 million, which will support the school in perpetuity.

We have set strategic goals to increase the endowment to $5 million by 2025 and $10 million by 2030.

Class Endowments

The Classes of 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 have all established endowment funds that culminate in their graduating year, providing bursaries to girls of promise. Following our mandate to ensure a Balmoral Hall education is within reach for all girls of promise, parents, grandparents, and students are involved in growing these funds through donations.

Named Funds

Several named funds have been created to celebrate former teachers, families, and alums. Each of these funds has specific criteria to support various areas of student need. Learn more by clicking on the link below.

I was a student at Balmoral Hall School for 10 years. I then spent some time away at University of Manitoba Asper School of Business and working for local not-for-profits, where my passion for helping people was fostered. I was pleased to join the Philanthropy & Alum team in 2011, and 12 years later I love Balmoral Hall more than ever. Every day, I am inspired by students and their incredible passion, ideas, and action to make the world a better place, supported by the faculty and staff here. I know the work we do at BH Foundation helps make their dreams a reality. Over the past few years, BH Foundation has taken a front seat in our strategic plan. Incorporated in the 1990s by a visionary board, BH Foundation sat dormant for 20 years, waiting for the right time to focus on endowment. Here we are at last, and I am thrilled to lead this effort, working with our amazing Board of Directors, chaired by Aynsley (Hinchliffe) Cockshott ’83.
