Ensure your legacy lives on to benefit Hilton College and its learners for decades to come. A bequest is a specific provision in your will directing certain assets in your estate to a beneficiary. Also known as a planned or deferred gift, a bequest allows you to enjoy your assets in your lifetime but share their benefits once you pass on.

Join our Cattle Project

Sponsoring an ox is an excellent way to support your alma mater. It’s also fun to watch the estate management team expertly caring for your ox – and stand the chance to win the grand annual prize and trophy!

Launched in 2009 with the donation of 40 oxen, our cattle project has contributed significantly to the Hilton farm and endowment fund, which in turn contributes to the Lift Up Your Hearts Fund offering financial aid to families of boys who can’t afford our fees.

We’ve converted all our maize lands to Kikuyu pasture and increased our carrying capacity to between 700 and 850 oxen per season. This growth has happened through weaner sponsorship and the reinvestment of project profits.

The Hiltonian Travel Service

The Hiltonian Travel Service was conceived of by Old Hiltonian Craig Goodenough (1988, Churchill), the owner of XL Howick Travel and Bundu Bashers. Created as a mechanism to give back to the school, the Hiltonian Travel Service pays a percentage of its profits to the Hiltonian Society Bursary Fund.

Established in 2012, the initiative has been a resounding success, adding considerably to the bursary fund.

Over the past decade, members of staff, parents of Hilton boys, friends of Hilton and Old Hiltonians, in SA and abroad, have supported The Hiltonian Travel Service by entrusting to it their travel arrangements.

Whether you need to travel for business or leisure, you are guaranteed competitive prices and excellent service, and the satisfaction of knowing that you have contributed to our school’s bursary fund.

Depending on your travel requirements, your booking may be handled by XL Howick Travel or Bundu Bashers, but the benefit goes to the school, through the Hiltonian Travel Service.
