Why we need you
Princethorpe Foundation schools are and always have been so much more than just places of education. They have a unique and almost unrivalled network of followers who demonstrate an unbelievable degree of support.
The Foundation was established in 2001 and remains true to our Christian ethos. We have not yet established an endowment and only recently embarked on our first capital campaign, for Science, and we will rely heavily on fundraising for future developments.
Short Term – The Annual Fund
There are always a number of smaller projects which can quickly enhance the daily life of the Schools. We continually appeal for donations to the Annual Fund which is designed to provide these additional resources we need within the year.
In addition, the Annual Fund provides an accessible affordable way for you to donate a small regular amount to the bursary fund and contribute towards a deserving child’s education.
Medium Term – Capital Campaign
The restoration and refurbishment of our historic buildings is a huge challenge and costs millions. From time to time we will embark on a Capital Campaign to tackle one such project.
The current Capital Campaign is for the development of a new Science building, but there are a multitude of other projects that you can support in a major way.
Long Term – Legacies
Legacies are our long-term strategy. Low interest rates coupled with longer retirement may mean that donating a large capital sum is simply not practical during your lifetime, and maybe more easily achieved by leaving a legacy.
Princethorpe Foundation is a registered charity and therefore any bequests are exempt from any inheritance tax liability. In these uncertain times, you may like to consider leaving a percentage of your residual estate once other bequests have been met.
