Bequests, large and small, have been a significant source of support for Hilton Head Prep. A legal disposition by will, which names Hilton Head Prep as the recipient of all or a portion of the donor's estate, not only helps the school, but usually reduces the donor's federal estate taxes, and in most cases state inheritance taxes as well. The donor may specify that the school receive a percentage, an asset, a specific dollar amount or a remainder of his or her estate. Frequently, a donor may set up a charitable arrangement designating the income for life to another person and the principal, ultimately, to Hilton Head Prep.
If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact Margot Brown, Director of Development and Finance, at 843-715-8506.
Make a Difference in a Student’s Life
Prep’s Sponsor-a-Student Program offers you the opportunity to provide scholarship grants for students who may not have the chance to attend Prep without the help of benefactors like you. We believe it is vital that our school community reflect the diversity found in the real world. We strive to attract diverse students from a true cross section of the Lowcountry and beyond. Our population is ethnically and culturally diverse. We hope you will take the opportunity to invest in the education, transformation, and future of a diverse population of qualified students for academic challenges, successful college experiences, and rewarding lives.
Although our school is tuition driven, we believe that tuition costs should not be a deterrent for attendance. Our goal is to make a Prep education affordable for every family who wishes to be here. Approximately 30% of our students receive need based tuition assistance, and with your help we will be able to offer more students the help that they need. Thank you for your commitment towards this goal!
For more information, please call Margot Brown, Director of Development and Finance, at 843-715-8506.
A corporate matching gift is a great way for a donor to considerably increase the size of his or her gift. Many companies will match gifts 1:1; some will even triple employee contributions. Matching gifts, for instance, can change a $500 contribution into a Leadership Circle gift of $1,000. Contact your company's Human Resources Department to obtain the necessary forms and instructions and read the list of select matching gift companies.

A Third-Party Event is any fundraising activity by a non-affiliated group or individual where Hilton Head Preparatory School has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement. (Examples include donation drives, fundraising parties and bake sales.) The path to launching a third-party event typically begins with an idea and plan of action that is presented to Hilton Head Prep. Event organizers must obtain their own liability insurance to cover the event.
The time and effort that you put into such an event will support our academic curriculum, athletics program, the visual and performing arts and so much more. No matter how large or small, your contribution will make a big difference in the lives of our students.
