Each of these options may appeal to different donors for different reasons and the Development Office will be happy to discuss in person how to make a donation to the School. Please call Development Manager, Scott MacDonald, for further information on 01905 613391 or email him: firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to planned bursary support the School also assists with hardship funding requests where appropriate and possible. Each year through unforeseen circumstances a small number of families of existing RGS pupils may find themselves facing financial hardship that was not expected such as a bereavement or loss of employment. Often short term hardship funding can be the vital bridge that spans the gap until the situation is stabilised.
Donations can be directed to specific areas of the School or they can be disbursed at the discretion of the Governors depending upon the wishes of the donor. Although the School’s immediate priority is the funding of bursaries through the 20/20 Campaign and donations to this cause will be most welcome, gifts for other purposes will be of equal importance.
The School only ever makes bursary awards and hardship grants on the basis of means-tested financial needs. All funds donated to RGS are gratefully received and they are carefully stewarded by the School on behalf of the donor.
