Tax Benefit

The Hiltonian Society and our Hilton College Endowment Foundation both qualify to award section 18a tax certificates under the South African Income Tax Act.

The USA, U.K. and Canada offer similar tax deductible incentives.

Give regularly or make a once-off donation

You can make your donation by electronic funds transfer (EFT), debit order, or through our 3D-Secure online payment form (hosted by Paygate). Donate now.

If you want to make a recurring payment (locally or internationally) we support Mastercard and Visa credit cards.

We also offer a secure online EFT option for South African bank account holders.

We’ll soon be adding PayPal, Zapper and Snapscan payment options.

Make a substantial donation

If you’d like to make a substantial donation towards any of the four funds (or a different cause that means a lot to you), please email

Donate company shares

You are welcome to donate shares in your public or private company to our Hilton College Endowment Foundation. If your company is successful, our Foundation benefits through capital appreciation and dividend distributions. For tax benefits, you can only deduct public shares that you donate (not private shares).

Make a bequest

A bequest is a specific provision in your will directing certain assets in your estate to Hilton College. 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.

Your legacy will benefit Hilton College and its learners for decades to come.

Join our Cattle Project

Launched in 2009 with initial donations of 40 oxen, our innovative Cattle Project has contributed significantly to the Hilton farm and endowment fund. 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. Sponsoring an ox is an excellent way to support your school. (It’s also fun to watch the Estate management team expertly caring for your ox – and to stand the chance to win the grand annual prize and trophy!)

When you sponsor the purchase of a weaner, you contribute to our Lift Up Your Hearts Fund, offering financial aid to boys and their families.

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.
