What is Innovative about the Centenary Arch Appeal?

There are several distinctive features of our Centenary Arch Appeal that will help drive its success:

    All donations raised will be transferred directly to the Kearsney College Development Fund. It will be preserved, invested and the returns capitalized. An agreed upon percentage of the returns will be drawn down annually to commit as bursaries and future capital investment.
    Specific donations varying in value can be made, thus making it possible for every Kearsney College Old Boy and current boy of the college to be a part of this Appeal.
R2 500 – once-off payment
R25 000 – once-off payment or recurring monthly commitment over a maximum of 50 months
R50 000 – once-off payment or recurring monthly commitment over a maximum of 50 months
R100 000 – once-off payment or recurring monthly commitment over a maximum of 50 months


    Donors will be acknowledged by their names being added to our various donor boards in the Centenary Arch at the entrance to the Centenary Academic Centre.
    The appeal will be a global one, drawing in Old Boys from around the world. It presents a unique opportunity for the school to reconnect with its widely dispersed alumni base. Current boys of the College will also have the opportunity of donating to this appeal and leaving their mark.

The Value of your Commitment

There are 600 places available to have your name etched onto our “Founders of Kearsney’s Second Century” glass donor boards for a once-off payment of R2500. This opportunity is being made available exclusively to Old Boys and current pupils of Kearsney College for a limited period.

Donations of R25 000; R50 000; R100 000 and upwards will be recorded on our dedicated donor boards which are to be situated within the same area. These commitments can be paid either as a single donation, annual donations or via recurring monthly donations over a maximum period of 50 months. 

Why should you support the Appeal?

Kearsney College is a great South African institution. It has a valuable role to play in developing well rounded, socially responsible young men, and in so doing forging a positive future for the country. By supporting this appeal, you are enabling Kearsney College to successfully position itself for the next century.


Tax deductibility of donations

The Kearsney College Foundation is a registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) and enjoys Section 18A status which permits the issuing of donation tax certificates to South African taxpayers.
Any tax benefit accruing to overseas donors will be regulated by the country in which the donation is made. Kearsney College has already put into place various mechanisms that will provide donors in select countries with the opportunity to leverage this tax benefit.
Please consult the Kearsney College Foundation on foundation@kearsney.com for more details relating to international donations.
