More and more often, girls are finding Balmoral Hall School online and with social media. They are the ones who envision themselves as BH girls, and then ask their parents to send them to the school. Financially, this is not always a realistic option. It breaks our hearts to turn away girls who want to enrol here because of funding. This is why one of our strategic priorities is to increase the size of our endowment fund. Every year, our endowment generates income used to provide critically needed tuition relief and ensures that a Balmoral Hall education is within reach for all girls of promise.
HOW YOU CAN HELP —
Donors generally give to the endowment in one of two ways: by giving unrestricted support to fund girls of promise generally; or by establishing a named endowment fund as a lasting tribute to friends, family, or former teachers.
A named endowment fund may be established through a gift of $50,000 or more to Balmoral Hall School Foundation, which may be contributed in installments over a period of up to 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.
For more information, and to make a gift, please contact Genevieve Cloutier '03 at (204) 784-1616 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Because we believe the student body defines a school, diversity is a great hallmark of Balmoral Hall School. Our endowment supports this belief. Great schools are not built on fees. Great schools are built on philanthropic investment from alumnae, parents, grandparents, and staff.
The Class of 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 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.
