Giving the gift of education

The Diocesan Heritage Foundation was established to bring our community together and enhance opportunities for all girls to grow the courage and confidence they need to positively shape the future.

For nearly 25 years, the Foundation has led fundraising efforts to support the School as a leading independent girls’ school in New Zealand. The Foundation has established three integral pathways of giving.

From the beginning, your gifts have helped the Foundation to create opportunities through significant endowments for scholarships for students and staff, gifts for key projects and bequests which all have been gratefully received. Thank you, your gift will last a lifetime.

Leave a Legacy – your enduring gift

Leaving a bequest to Diocesan School for Girls – whether big or small – is an opportunity to make a tangible and enduring gift to the school and, in doing so, helping to provide life-changing educational opportunities for generations to come. Bequests offer an opportunity to honour a loved one or to decide how you will be remembered. In many cases, legacy gifts serve to inspire others.

We deeply appreciate the generosity of community members who have remembered us through their estates. Bequests can be a cash amount, residual percentage of an estate, property, works of art or other gifts.

Should you wish to discuss your legacy or specific wishes in more detail, please contact Angela Coe, on 09 520 9378 or by email
