      The Appeal

      We are delighted to have raised £2m towards our £2.5m target, thanks to the generosity of our Sherborne Girls community – parents, past parents, Old Girls, Honorary Old Girls, and friends. Thank you to everyone who has supported this transformational project.

      We always knew that we would have to fundraise for the remaining £500,000 throughout construction, and now that building work is underway, we really need your support to help us close the gap.

      We value every donation, whatever the amount and whether as a one-off payment or a gift spread over several years. We are also pleased to recognise the generosity of our donors in a number of ways depending on the value of the gift.

      From rooms within the Centre, to seats in the Recital Hall, there are a number of important features within the new building, which provide discreet and tangible areas for special recognition. As well as being a wonderful way of recognising generosity, naming aspects of our new building will give our new Arts Centre character, and will remind future generations of the importance of philanthropy.

      Together we can shape the future!

      Gift Aid and time

      The Sherborne Girls Foundation is a registered charity, so we qualify for Gift Aid.  We are also organising the cash flow so that donors can spread their giving over time – up to four years. Do have a look at our example.

      Why not try out our Tax Calculator to see how Gift Aid boosts your donation and reduces the net cost to you.
