About the Hale School Foundation

Hale School has a longstanding tradition of philanthropy, enjoying the support of Old Boys, parents and friends who have given generously to the School.  This generosity has helped to build the magnificent and spacious Wembley Downs campus that all boys enjoy today.

The Hale School Foundation was established in 1987 with a mission to foster and develop this culture of philanthropy in the school community.  Philanthropic donations are directed to support Hale School and its students and staff through the Scholarship or Building Fund.

Management of the Hale School Foundation is vested in the Hale School Foundation Board, which acts in consultation with the Headmaster and Board of Governors.

The Foundation Board manages the investment corpus, which receives income and contributions from the Endowment Fee paid on acceptance of a place at Hale School, philanthropic giving and bequests.

Management of the investment corpus aims to give Hale School a strong and permanent financial base.  In consultation with the Board of Governors, returns from the investment corpus are divested to the School to fund its Scholarship Programme and support its ongoing Capital Works Programme.

Hale School Foundation Staff

Hale School Foundation staff work with Hale’s broad philanthropic community who are interested in learning about and supporting the School’s vision of inspiring the authentic development of every boy.

Whether it be for assistance for students who would otherwise be unable to receive a Hale School education, or for supporting the School’s rolling capital works programme, or through providing major gifts to support other important programmes at the School, we welcome your interest.
