Annual Giving

Annual Giving is used to provide funding for projects, items or professional development that will make a difference to the students, their families, and the faculty and staff of Selwyn House School. Your participation, in any way, will help make that difference. 

BURSARIES:

Donations that are designated to fund student bursaries are invested in the General Endowment Fund that provides approximately 75 per cent of all the bursaries awarded annually. The remaining 25 per cent are funded through named endowment funds.

Investment income earned on endowed funds is disbursed as bursary awards for qualifying families. The principle of the fund is never touched so that the fund can continue to grow.
 
The Bursary Committee meets regularly to determine the recipients of needs-based bursaries. The recipients are  anonymous.

  • The Hannaford-Doherty Mental Health & Wellness Fund

    The goal of The Hannaford-Doherty Mental Health & Wellness Fund is to honour former Headmaster Hal Hannaford and his wife Susan's legacy of caring at Selwyn House, where every boy is Known and Loved. Funds will be available when they are most needed.

    Many mental health problems start in childhood and adolescence. However, because issues related to mental health are often overlooked in children and adolescents, only one in five children who need mental health services receive them.

    The Hannaford-Doherty Mental Health & Wellness Fund will provide training and certification by Mental Health First Aid Canada each year to Selwyn House teachers and staff to help identify and address mental health problems when they first become apparent. Early intervention can help to prevent problems from becoming worse.
