  • Bequests & Planned Gifts - Making a Gift in Your Will

    A bequest made through a donor's will is probably the best known form of planned giving. Bequests are considered to be revocable, or legally non-­binding. Consequently, there is no immediate income tax benefit associated with a bequest. However, a receipt for the full value of the bequest is issued to the donor's estate in the year of death. This receipt can be applied to the donor's final income tax return and will offset taxes payable by the estate. Donors can claim up to 100% of net income with a one-‐year

    A charitable bequest directed to Rothesay Netherwood School may be stated in your will in a variety of ways: a specific dollar amount, a percentage of an estate, or as the residual of the estate.
    When you decide to include a bequest to Rothesay Netherwood School in your will, it is important that your lawyer be consulted. By drafting a will and keeping it valid and up to date, you can ensure that your family, friends and the school are provided for as you intended.

    For more information, please contact The Development & Alumni Affairs Office at 506-­848-­0861 or via . All enquiries are held in the strictest confidence.
  • Gifts of Property

    Gifting property such as a cottage, home, rental property or undeveloped land is a wonderful method of charitable giving that can provide donors with tax relief. Upon proof of appraisal, donors can receive a tax receipt equal to the value of the property being donated. The donor may also avoid paying taxes on the capital gains that would be realized by the property at time of sale by donating it to RNS.
  • Gifts-in-Kind

    We are always in need of items such as quality athletic equipment, art supplies, library resources and furniture. If you wish to donate items to RNS, we'd love to hear from you. We can issue tax receipts upon receipt of certified appraisals of your donation.

A Tribute in Donations

Rothesay Netherwood School will gratefully accept donations in memory of someone or in honour of someone or a special occasion. We would be pleased to send a notification card to the family or appropriate person on your behalf as well, if you would like us to.

Many of our alumni choose to mark their anniversary of graduation or other special occasions with a celebratory gift to the school. This is also a unique way to celebrate a milestone event, or to provide a gift for a hard-to-buy-for-person.
As well, a number of alumni and friends have indicated that they have chosen Rothesay Netherwood School as the preferred charity for their memorial donations.  Combined with a bequest, this is a wonderful way to start a personal endowment to create a scholarship which would help future students.

In Tribute donations will support the area of greatest need, or may be directed by the donor to another area of need at the school. Click here to view a list of named bursary and scholarship funds. Some donors also choose to honour loved ones by naming a tree, chair, room, or bursary fund in tribute. Please see the Opportunities menu on this page for additional details.

Should you wish further information about in tribute donations, we would be pleased to speak with you. Please contact Nic Carhart in the Development & Alumni Affairs Office at 506-848-0861 or via email at

Gift Naming

In recognition of support at certain levels, the school is pleased to offer donors the opportunity to have a plaque mounted on, or near, the specific area being funded.  There are several commemorative opportunities outlined below. If this is in tribute to someone, we would be pleased to send a card to the recipient notifying them of your gift.
