Philanthropy was at the heart of the founding of Ruyton, for philanthropy is not just about giving money, it’s about solving problems.
Our founder, Mrs Charlotte Anderson, a woman of great courage and determination, believed in girls. Her vision laid Ruyton’s reputation for sound scholarship, opportunity and challenge for girls and is maintained by those who follow in her footsteps.
Today this culture of philanthropy is still strong within our community where students, staff, parents and alumnae give of their time, expertise and financial support, to ensure that Ruyton remains a forward-thinking girls’ school preparing girls for a lifetime of learning, leadership and engagement in our global community.
The focus of our Foundation and philanthropy is to ensure we have the means to empower our girls; provide them with powerful learning experiences and environments; engage our community and guarantee Ruyton’s continued prosperity as a leading girls’ school.
To assist the newly formed Foundation Committee, we will be providing opportunities for our community to ensure we have a strong Scholarship programme; a Building Fund programme that is exciting and progressive, and an opportunity for our community to remember Ruyton in their wills.
Individuals who generously choose to invest in the School, no matter the level, play a vital part in helping to foster and expand a growing culture of philanthropy at Ruyton.
If you’d like to discuss how you can contribute to the Ruyton Scholarship Fund, a building project or how to leave a bequest in your will, I look forward to the opportunity to talk with you.
