Support Christ Church Cathedral School
One of the core values at Christ Church Cathedral School is the belief that everyone deserves access to a high-quality education. Our commitment is to create that opportunity for all current and future students. We always appreciate the support from our South Island community, which helps us provide an exceptional educational experience.
Thank you for considering donating to Christ Church Cathedral School!
As a small, independent school, we can only provide our students with the best programming, learning tools and facilities with your support. Cathedral School is blessed to be supported in so many ways by the families of our students and other generous individuals and groups in the community. Thank you!

Payroll Deductions. A convenient way to contribute is by payroll deduction. Speak with your H.R. Department to determine how this works with your employer. Public employees have an existing program which can be found here: PECSF. See further information for Provincial employees below.
Employee Matching Programs. Many companies will match your donation to a charitable organization. Double the power of your donation for greater impact! Contact your employer to find out more.
Gifts of Securities. Stocks and bonds offer great tax benefits. For more information, see “Securities Transfer Form” on the sidebar.
Legacy Gifts. Designating Christ Church Cathedral Educational Society as a beneficiary in your will is a way to ensure that your generosity will benefit the School in the future.
Designate your gift:
The Stuart Hall Bursary Fund.
Ask any member of the school community what makes Stuart Hall special; the most frequent answers are: “He cares”; “He builds community”; “We feel like a family.”
Above all, Stuart Hall’s highly principled and steady leadership is nurtured by love: a love of teaching and learning and a love for children and their wonderous potential.
To mark Stuart’s retirement and in a spirit of profound gratitude for his service, the Board and the Parent Support Group wish to establish the Stuart Hall Bursary Fund. This fund will be a permanent, ever-lasting endowment at the Victoria Foundation, providing one or more need-based bursaries every year. Our initial goal is to raise $50,000 for the endowment, which at 4.5% will disburse $2500 per year.
To get the ball rolling, the Board (with the generous help of an anonymous donor) has established a $25,000 matching fund which will match every gift, dollar for dollar, to that level. Therefore, all contributions received before August 31 will effectively have their value doubled.
Your generous contribution ensures the Cathedral School remains accessible to all.
Gifts in any amount are very welcome and deeply appreciated. It is very important that they are clearly designated for the Stuart Hall Bursary Fund.
Gifts can be made by cash or cheque through the School office, by e-transfer to email@example.com; or via the form below.
Gifts can also be made online through www.canadahelps.ca.
To ensure a tax receipt, please include a complete mailing address.
Each year CCCS plans a fundraising focus. Previous years have included resurfacing the playground, purchasing new musical instruments, and purchasing a new school bus. Simply indicate that your donation is to support the Annual Fund.
Support our Bursary Fund.
Enabling children to attend CCCS who could not do so without financial assistance has always been and remains one of the fundamental practises that defines our School. You can also specify if you would like your donation to be in honour of a person.
Support a Specific Program Area.
Are you passionate about Science & Technology? The Arts? Athletics? You can specify exactly where you’d like to see your donation directed to support what matters most to you. If you are undecided, you can request that your donation be applied to the School’s greatest need.
Many Cathedral School parents are provincial employees. The Community Services Fund Campaign for provincial employees (PECSF) is underway and is a fantastic way to contribute to charitable causes in the community. Through payroll deductions, you can support up to 10 different charities.
Did you know that Cathedral School (Christ Church Cathedral Educational Society) is one of the donors you can support?
You will find it under “Other Charities Look Up.”
100% of your donation goes directly to the school to help us continue to update and expand our programs and facilities and support our bursary fund.
For those of you who have chosen to support CCCS through this program, we would like to thank you very much! It is certainly appreciated. Employees need to renew their donations every Campaign, as pledges do not roll over from year-to-year.
