Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Annual Fund? 

The Annual Fund is money raised through donations for the school’s current-year operating expenses. Rowland Hall raises money through the Annual Fund each year to help make up the difference between what tuition covers and the actual cost of running the school.  

What does the Annual Fund support?

The Annual Fund provides the critical difference between what is ordinary and what is extraordinary about the Rowland Hall experience, and it touches all aspects of school life—from the classrooms to the library, from technology to the playground, from our debate program to jazz band, and from the stage to the athletic fields.

What is the difference between a pledge and a gift?

A gift is a donation now. A pledge is your commitment to donating by June 30—the last day of our fiscal year.

Why is participation important? 

We aim for 100% participation from everyone in the Rowland Hall community. High participation is a vote of confidence, a sign that the community is dedicated and supports the school’s mission. The percentage of participation can also have an impact on gifts from outside sources; most foundations consider participation rates before agreeing to donate funds to a school.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes. All contributions are fully tax-deductible according to IRS regulations.

Can my gift be anonymous?

Yes. When you send your contribution, be sure to let us know that you would like it to be anonymous and we will be happy to honor your request.

How much should I give?

All giving is personal; we leave it to the giver’s discretion to determine the amount appropriate for them.

Can I give stock?

Yes. Gifts of long-term appreciated stock or mutual funds are an easy and tax-efficient way to give to Rowland Hall. In order to secure the benefits of giving a gift of stock, you must have owned the securities for more than one year. Read more.

Can my gift be matched by my company?

Yes, we welcome matching gifts—they're an easy way to double your gift to Rowland Hall. When you donate, please let us know that your company offers matching gifts.

Can I restrict my gift to a specific purpose?

Unrestricted gifts are most helpful to Rowland Hall and are applied where needed most. But if you wish, you may designate a portion or all of your gift to a specific fund.

Teachers and coaches encouraged me and believed in me...Having a community behind me that cares what I think and pushes me to grow has had a tremendous impact on who I've become.
