Impact of Giving

The importance and impact of giving cannot be understated, and through philanthropy and our community’s generosity, we can make a difference to our girls and ensure the future of our School. At Ruyton, we are proud of our history as one of the oldest girls’ schools in Victoria; together, we can ensure our future as a leading educator of girls for generations to come. Whether through the gift of an education, the development of our facilities to compliment a modern education, or leaving a legacy through a bequest – no matter how big or small, together we can make an indelible impact.

Founder’s Scholarship (tax deductible)

The Founder’s Scholarship is a financially means-tested scholarship that provides the gift of a Ruyton education to a young girl who could otherwise not afford to attend our School. With this life changing opportunity, we can equip girls to create their future and extend their world and possibilities. At present, we offer this scholarship to one girl, and through the generosity of our community we hope to build this to provide six scholarships every year in perpetuity. DONATE

Henty Excellence in Teaching Fund (non-tax deductible)

Our girls stand on the shoulders of those who guide and teach them, learning integral values and lessons that will positively influence their futures. Providing additional opportunities for our educators to further develop their professional practice, this fund will positively impact learning and teaching in our classrooms and enhance Ruyton as a centre of learning and leadership.

Building Fund (tax deductible)

The Building Fund was established to extend the learning opportunities and breadth of experience for students and staff through the development of state-of-the-art facilities. We are entering an exciting phase in our history, as we are poised to complete the 10-year masterplan, culminating in the development of Royce Theatre and the Library precinct. DONATE
