Depending on Your Generosity
While tuition and government grants cover our school operations and staff compensation, like all independent schools Aspengrove relies on donations to provide our students with exceptional experiences and facilities. The Ravens Nest Activity Centre, sport court, playground, library collection, and laptops, for example, have all been made possible because of the generosity of our community.
2022-2023 Annual Fund
Project Refresh: Furnishing the Future
To best support the unique needs of our students and engage them as active participants in their learning, we need classroom furniture that uses our classroom space wisely and enables greater opportunities for innovative and active learning experiences. With your support, we will purchase classroom furniture designed to create learning spaces that can be easily reconfigured for different educational delivery and learning needs. We are deeply grateful for each and every gift, no matter the amount. We ask that you consider a gift that is meaningful to you.
As a not-for-profit organization, Aspengrove has limited funding for financial aid. However, as a small school we are proud to be able to assist a significant number of families with support. With your donation, we can support current families as well as exceptional prospective students who could not otherwise afford an Aspengrove education.
We greatly appreciate your partnership and generosity to Aspengrove School. All donations make a difference. You will be taken to PayPal to complete your donation and will have the option to set up a monthly gift should you wish to do so.

Why support the annual fund?
I already support Aspengrove through my child’s tuition and fees. Why are you asking for donations?
We understand that for many parents an Aspengrove education requires great financial sacrifice and we thank you for all that you do in support of the school.
What you may not know is that the fees you pay do not cover the complete cost of an Aspengrove education. To enhance your child’s experience at the school, to see us add the facilities that will match the excellence in our classrooms – that is why the Annual Fund has been created.
Your gift can also ensure that deserving students are able to attend Aspengrove regardless of their economic background. Your gift can help support a young person whose family cannot afford the complete cost of our fees. You can make a powerful difference in a student’s life.
How do donations help my child?
The Annual fund makes a difference in your child’s life every day at school. Gifts from the Aspengrove Family have made the dream of a gym a reality, purchased computers for our classrooms, sponsored trips for our students, provided scholarships and bursaries to deserving students, purchased equipment for the science program, added art supplies, added books for our library and classrooms, purchased play equipment for the junior kindergarten, musical instruments for our band program…and much, much more.
Will my donation really help?
I cannot afford much – will my gift really help?
Absolutely! Large gifts are needed if we are to reach our goals, but all gifts help! We recognize that every family’s ability to give is different – we only ask that you consider a gift that is meaningful to you, but within your means.
Your gift, whatever the size, makes a powerful statement about your support for Aspengrove and our students, and together with others it will make a difference.
I’d like to give more, but not all at once.
How can I do that?
You can give through pre-authorized charges to your credit card via PayPal. That way a smaller gift can grow over time. Consider a $25 per month gift on your credit card: In one year it would grow to a $300 gift – enough to purchase a needed piece of sporting equipment or to support a student going on a school field trip. If only ten people did this there would be enough money to offer a significant scholarship or bursary for a student.
Gifts towards new classroom equipment can be pledged over 3 years.
