Ways to donate
Raphael House Founders Circle
Making a Donation
We can protect your donation to ensure it is used for the purpose you wish. There are two ways to achieve this, depending on the value of your donation and how you would like us to use it.
Donations to be used within a specific time frame.
Donations of this classification are held in trust until they are used. These funds are audited annually to ensure they have been used for the intended purpose. We can provide you with a financial statement periodically during the year.
Donations as legacies.
In this case only income generated from the investment is made available for use (generally for amounts exceeding $20,000). Donations of this type are held in trust with the Endowment Fund.
Gifts in Kind
At Raphael House School we have begun to create a “wish list” to help support our students and staff in their day to day quests at school. Often small, used (pre-loved) or unwanted items are real gifts in kind and can make a huge difference, so please take a look at the “wish list” below and see if you have anything you would like to donate.
Check out our “wish list” below and if you see something around the house that you would like to donate, please contact us or just stop by for a visit.
