Giving back to Cashmere High School

Cashmere High School is going from strength to strength and continues to provide an opportunity for an education surpassing expectations. The extensive physical restructuring of the school post-earthquakes creates the opportunity for all Past Pupils and Friends of Cashmere High School to get involved in guiding the school into the new normal and facilitating a pride in our shared education experiences.

Gifting at all levels can make this possible.

Whilst government funding is earmarked to cover the majority of the repairs and redevelopment of Cashmere High over the next few years… already there is an anticipated shortfall, motivating the Cashmere High Community to get involved in getting Cashmere High School from Good to Great.

Cashmere High School Foundation is a registered charity with the Charities Commission #CC22995. This means that there are usually tax benefits in giving to the High School.

Each donor’s situation is unique. Some donors will find it easiest to simply write a personal cheque entitling them to a tax rebate. Others may find it more tax effective to get tax deductions by donating through their family-owned companies or via their family trust.

It is also becoming increasingly popular for people to look at supporting their communities by earmarking donations through a bequest. If this appeals to you the Cashmere High School Foundation encourages you to talk with your lawyer about updating your will and defining your bequest. If you’d like to make a bequest the Cashmere High School Foundation, we’ve provided some suggested wording that can assist with this process here.

Whatever the size of your Gift, whether it’s a Life Membership, a one-off Donation, or part of a regular giving scheme, it is your participation that is crucial and valued. Your gift really does make a difference.
