Why Give to the Haileybury Foundation

6 Reasons to Support Haileybury

1. School fees alone are not enough to carry this great School into the future.

Providing a world-class teaching program in exceptional facilities for your sons and daughters is our commitment. Currently, Haileybury school fees cover the costs of employing the highest calibre teaching staff, student-related educational expenses such as excursions, incursions and programs, and general operating costs required to run state-of-the-art facilities across four Melbourne campuses, and a School in Darwin. As you can imagine, these costs are enormous, which means we need to source additional funding to fill the gap in order to continue delivering on our commitment to our Vision and Mission, and most importantly to our students. Because at Haileybury, every child matters, every day.

2. Government funding is uncertain.

Each year, both State and Commonwealth Government funding for private institutions such as ours has been slowly declining. What this means is we can no longer rely on these funds to support projects and initiatives like we once did. We therefore seek the support of our Haileybury community so we may continue to provide best-in-class facilities and programs for our students and staff.

3. Endowments support institutions through tough times, let’s grow ours…

As we have all experienced in 2020, these unprecedented circumstances have highlighted the importance of planning for the future, pivoting, and supporting those in our community. The Foundation was able to provide some support during this time but building an endowment or corpus over time will ensure our great School’s longevity is continued, enabling us to support our students, families, those in need  in times of crisis, or to lay the foundations when the time comes to build something new and great, such as an additional building or facility. Haileybury may be 128 years old, but the Haileybury Foundation is still young, so now is the time to build for our future.

4. Our strong Governance ensures gifts are used for their intended purpose…

It is important to disclose that all gifts to the Haileybury Foundation will be used for the purpose they were intended. This may include the support of scholarships, our Building or Library Fund, or other programs that would not otherwise be possible, both now and in the future. All funds are managed appropriately by our Foundation Board and are not used for any general School expense purposes.

5. Provide a life changing opportunity.

By giving (or for Alumni, by giving back) your gift by way of a donation means you are contributing to the education of a future great leader, entrepreneur, developer or medical specialist who may well assist in preventing future health crises. Haileybury has nurtured and educated countless successful students who have graduated as empowered 21st century citizens, going on to shape the future in this world.

Such is the power of educational philanthropy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know you played a part in this success.

6. Every gift makes a difference!

Every gift, large or small adds up to a significant sum that collectively makes amazing things possible!

The world’s greatest schools and universities have the full philanthropical support of their communities, creating endowments and deep funds to support generations of students and secure the legacy of their great institutions.  Let’s work together to elevate the greatness of Haileybury and make a difference, not just for today or tomorrow, but for future generations to come.
