Specific (Fundraising) Campaign

Alumni Avenue

Leave your mark on the Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA campus!

That is right, we are giving you the chance as an alumnus to have your name written on the walls of Waterford Kamhlaba, through the Alumni Avenue. This Avenue aims to encourage giving back to the Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA family, as well as giving you, alumni, the opportunity to leave your mark on campus.

With a minimum donation of ZAR1500, £90, $110, €100 we will place a glass brick with your name engraved on it in the Alumni Avenue. Ngwenya Glass will be recycling unused glass to create these bricks.

There is no better time than now to donate to WK! With the Thanks a Million Davis-UWC Impact Challenge matching each and every donation that you make, your gift, and its impact, will be multiplied.

You can of course decide where your donation goes, be it scholarships, community service projects, capital projects, staff development and more.

Click on the image below to donate, and we will place a glass brick in the Alumni Avenue in your honour. Or get a group of co-years together to make the minimum donation and we will place a brick to represent your year group.

Thank you to everyone who continues to believe in and support Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA. Every donation makes a difference!

The Phoenix Fund Campaign

The Phoenix Fund campaign rallies the Waterford Kamhlaba community - students, staff, parents and Governing Council - together to contribute resources towards setting up, improving and replacing infrastructure in the school. This initiative is more than just raising money; it is a collective gift by our community to our school, particularly towards small, but crucial infrastructure that is not covered in the budget for capital projects.

The projects to be funded are decided on by the students.

Phoenix Fund campaign 2015

In 2015, E62,202 was raised and was used to improve the school’s old audio-visual system in the assembly hall and CCLD and for more spectator stands for the fields.

Through our gifts, we now have better lighting on the sports field, improved our sound system and built outdoor learning spaces. We can still do more!

Phoenix Fund campaign 2016

The 2016 appeal was aimed towards the installation of solar lights for pathways between the hostels. For security reasons, students utilize these pathways to different points on the campus at night. The design for the solar lights was done by one of the IB students, Zikai Wang.

Donations to the 2016 Phoenix Fund were matched under the Davis-UWC Impact Challenge
