Welcome to the Fold! Annual Giving 2021-2022

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 23, 2021 9:54:39 AM

Welcome to the KES Highlander Fold! Providing a welcoming environment for our Students, Parents, Faculty, Alumni, and the greater KES Community is the foundation of our new KES Highlander ethos of “Welcome to the Fold.” A unique aspect of Highland Cattle is that they live in folds, not herds. Hence, “Welcome to the Fold!” Our goal at KES is to build an inclusive and accessible community for everyone. We recognize that becoming a fully accessible School is a journey of continuous improvement and as part of this year’s Annual Giving Campaign, we are starting phase one of our journey. AG WEBSITE GRAPHIC 2


Integral to the overall KES experience is how well we facilitate movement on our Campus. Therefore, our first Annual Giving Campaign goal is to begin eliminating physical barriers through important campus improvements. Currently, some members of our community struggle to access the Hensley Memorial Chapel safely. To eliminate this physical barrier to the Chapel, we plan to build a ramp that will dovetail into the beautiful stonework of this historic 1877 building. Also, as part of Phase One of the KES accessibility plan, we will pave the Ted Canavan Athletic Centre parking area, allowing easier and safer, year-round access to Campus.


The second goal of our Annual Giving Campaign is to continue to ensure our School is accessible to every student who has the desire to receive a KES education regardless of their financial means. Financial Aid is always a priority at KES. One third of KES Students depend on our Financial Aid and Scholarship Programme every year. As enrolment continues to grow, so does our need for financial aid funding! Every time you give, you are making it possible for motivated students to bridge the gap between their finances and their educational goal of attending KES. Without donations from the KES Community, we must consider raising tuition fees each year which in turn makes KES less accessible to students who want to attend our School.

P.S. You can also direct your donation to the Headmaster’s Priorities Fund. Unrestricted gifts to this fund allows KES to be nimble in addressing the School’s needs and emerging priorities as they arise throughout the year.


P.P.S. You also have the option of directing your Annual Fund gift to an area of the School that’s most important to you. Contact us for more details!

Alumni, Parents, and Friends of King’s-Edgehill School play a key role in the School.

These important Annual Giving priorities are our first steps in the process of becoming a more accessible School for everyone. Your gift to this year’s Welcome to the Fold! Annual Giving Campaign will have an immediate impact on the lives of KES Students. As an independent School, KES does not receive ANY government funding, and this is one big reason why we need your support.

There are many ways to give:

Donate online, Set up a monthly installment gift, Send your cheque via mail, Give us a call, OR add your donation to your School account.
