Alumnae, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends support Trafalgar Castle School in a variety of ways – through annual giving or by directing their support to the following areas of the School:
Annual Fund/Head of School Initiatives – The Annual Fund and Head of School Initiative are the foundation of giving at Trafalgar Castle School. It enables us to direct donations to the areas of greatest need within the School – from academic programs, upgrades to the Castle’s infrastructure, financial assistance and experiential learning experiences. Every gift to the Annual Fund supports costs not covered by tuition fees.
Academics – The strength of our academic program is furthered by the generosity of our community. Designated gifts allow us to provide teachers with additional equipment, guest speakers, or programming to bring innovation and enrichment to students.

Arts – Music, drama, visual arts are all flourishing areas of discovery within the Trafalgar experience and donations to these areas in the past have supported expert workshops, new instruments or supplies, the creation of Arts Fest and more!
Athletics – Support for our athletics program allows for the purchase of new equipment, expert coaching workshops and a focus on students’ physical and emotional health and well-being. Our school may be small, but Trafalgar’s spirit is strong – Go Dragons!
Boarding Life – The Castle is home away from home for many of our students. Designated gifts to our Boarding Life program allow us to provide the little extras that make all the difference.
Corporate/Matching Gifts –Become a corporate sponsor at a fundraising event, host an event or become a match gift sponsor. Many organizations encourage employees to donate to charitable organizations by matching their contribution. If your organization has a matching gift program, your donation could be doubled or even tripled. Simply complete your company’s matching gift form and send it to email@example.com.
Donate Goods & Services – Gifts-in-kind or services are wonderful ways to give in lieu of monetary donations. These gifts have great impact and help us with our fundraising initiatives such as silent auctions or raffles with funds directed toward priority areas that will benefit students. Email our Advancement Office here to donate.
Financial Aid – Providing financial support for students who might otherwise not be able to attend Trafalgar Castle School, our Financial Aid program reflects our community’s longstanding commitment to making our school inclusive and truly a part of the fabric of Whitby and Durham Region.
Legacy Gift – Leave a legacy by donating to Trafalgar Castle in your will, life insurance, RRSPs, RRIFs, TFSAs, Stocks or Securities. While supporting Trafalgar Castle, you can reduce taxes within your estate, reduce taxes on capital gains and in some cases receive an immediate tax benefit.
Tribute Gift – Give in celebration, honour or memory to someone special in your life or a loved one. Whether you are celebrating a wedding and would like to make a donation in lieu of favours, a new baby, thanking a teacher or remembering a loved one who has passed away. You decide where to direct the gift. Simply choose your designation on the donation form and we will direct your donation to the area of need.
World of Difference – This innovative program supports a young student whose leadership potential and desire to learn shines through. Your support allows her to join us as a day student when she would otherwise struggle to afford the tuition. Your donation can make a world of difference in the life of a young girl.
