Supporting academic excellence

Each year many generous members of our school community encourage excellence by endowing a Speech Day prize. Donors endow prizes for many reasons: celebrating achievement and inspiring students; acknowledging their daughter's/granddaughter's/ mother’s or perhaps their own experiences at Abbotsleigh; being passionate about an area of study; or simply taking the opportunity to give back to the School. 

A gift of $1,000 to the Abbotsleigh Foundation endows a prize for five years. 

A gift of $5,000 to the Foundation will endow a prize in perpetuity with the option to name the prize. 

Please note that prize endowment gifts are not tax deductible.
