What is an Annual Fund?

An Annual Fund is a sustained giving scheme in which you commit to an annual gift, and choose the amount, the manner of payment and the timing of your gift. The Kingswood 2020 Annual Fund is a simple way of giving to Kingswood – a fund managed by Melville Douglas Investment Management. Signing up for a debit order, you can choose your level of giving, and your support will assure us of a consistent income stream on which we can base future planning.

It will be a gift that will go on giving – continuing the school for future generations.

Sign up

To sign up, download the Donation Form on the right with contribution options for debit orders, credit card donations, direct transfers or cheques. Complete the form and post it back to us, or fax it to the Bursar’s secure and private line : +27-46-622 7690. Please be sure to include a certified copy of your ID document to comply with FICA regulations.

Follow the example of many Old Kingswoodians and Kingswood College Council members who have signed up for the Annual Fund.  OK Club President, Jonathan Goldberg said ” If everyone gave a little each month, Kingswood would have the means to make our dreams come true.”

Giving levels

We realise that everyone’s level of giving will differ depending on their age and stage of life. We have named our giving levels after the scallops in the Kingswood crest. It is possible for even school leavers to make a small annual commitment, and to progress to the next levels as their life circumstances change.

Who administers these funds?

Established in 1994 to celebrate Kingswood’s Centenary, and with the purpose of  gathering a capital fund for use by Kingswood for the future, the Kingswood College Centenary Trust has been the custodian of all funds raised for Kingswood since that time. With time, and wise investments, the Trust fund has grown to a sizable war chest which is used to assist the College annually, as well as funding special capital projects like the construction of the new girls’ hostel, Kirkby House in 2004, and more recently, the Astroturf and Swimming Pool development.  Ever-vigilant of the capital amount, the Trust often makes finance available as interest free or low interest loans, relying on donations and fundraising for special projects to replenish the capital.

One thing is clear – any money donated to Kingswood College is well looked after, and wisely spent, with the prudent counsel of the trustees, and the outstanding professional services of Mellville Douglas as the Centenary Trust’s investment advisors.

Trustees of the Centenary Trust are

Mr Alistair Collier (Chairman)
Mr Tom Ansley
Mr Ross Randall
