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.
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.
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.
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.
