Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is a significant and yearly effort, providing much needed funding for mission-critical programs and expenses. Like other independent schools, the Annual Fund helps makes up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating a student. Although there are other giving opportunities throughout the year, the Annual Fund is the one time all members of our community are asked to contribute to Mooreland Hill School. The single best way that you can help the School meet our operating needs this year is by contributing to the Annual Fund.

From financial aid to faculty salaries, from classroom expenses to lighting the campus, your Annual Fund gift helps to run Mooreland Hill School each and every day. With your gift, our energy and emphasis can be on the full development of  our students – as scholars, athletes, artists, community members and global citizens. Every gift makes a difference.

You can give by sending your gift to the School at:
Annual Fund, Mooreland Hill School, 166 Lincoln Street, Kensington, Connecticut 06037

Named Endowment Funds

Endowment funds are lifelines for independent schools, colleges and universities and, like all of these institutions, Mooreland Hill relies on endowment income for budget, scholarship, and programming support. The Mooreland Hill School endowment fund takes two forms – unrestricted and restricted. The unrestricted general endowment is comprised of endowment gifts given to the school with no restrictions. These funds not only generate income but may also, by Board of Trustees designation, be used for capital purposes such as new campus construction, renovation projects or fiscal emergencies. Restricted funds consist of gifts given or left to the school for purposes of generating income for the school in perpetuity, usually in honor of or in memory of an individual or family.

Contributions may be made to the general endowment fund at any time. Or you may wish to consider establishing a fund in your or your family’s name. To find out more, please contact Business Manager Lori Brewer at 860-223-6428 or lbrewer@mooreland.org.

Planned Giving

Following our successful Capital Campaign, our next imperative is to seek additional ways to provide financial flexibility for Mooreland Hill School (MHS). One avenue is to build the MHS endowment which will give stability and continuity to the school. The established method for building a growing endowment is the provision for funds through planned giving opportunities. We offer the following opportunities to our Mooreland community:

  • A bequest through your will or trust.
  • By making MHS the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
  • By making MHS the beneficiary of an IRA, 401(k), 403(b) or bank account.
  • By making MHS the beneficiary of a Charitable Remainder or Lead Trust
  • By establishing a charitable gift annuity for MHS.

We encourage all in the MHS family, including alumni, parents, grandparents and friends of Mooreland to consider making a planned gift. The school is fortunate to have many financial professionals available to assist donors looking to discuss how to make MHS a part of their estate plans. For further details on how your planned gift can be structured please call Head of School Reed Rathgeber at 860-223-6428 or via email at rrathgeber@mooreland.org.
