The Ridleian Fund identifies impactful projects and areas of need annually that will significantly impact our students in the year ahead. Your generous support enriches the Ridley student experience to help every student who passes through our gates to flourish.

Potential Meets Opportunity

Each year, the Ridleian Fund provides the opportunity for our entire Ridley community to unite with the shared purpose of enhancing the educational experience of our students in the upcoming year.

Your gift to the Ridleian Fund can have a direct and immediate impact. It will help shape the future of Ridley by providing funds for scholarships and bursaries, programme enhancements that support meaningful student experiences, facilities and equipment improvements and investments in innovation and creativity to continue Ridley’s tradition of excellence — your annual support matters.

Our community’s continued generosity in supporting the Ridleian Fund allows us to make choices, not compromises, and foster student success in ways not otherwise covered by the cost of tuition. The dedication of the Ridley family each year helps make Ridley College an extraordinary and transformative experience for our students. Thank you for choosing to make a difference. All donors to the Ridleian Fund are recognized in our annual report.  

Where You Can Make a Difference

Scholarships & Bursaries

Our school has always prided itself on the ability to offer talented, deserving students with the legacy of a Ridley education thanks to our robust scholarship and bursary programme. Each year, Ridley provides over $3 million in tuition assistance to deserving students, and for a growing number of students, this support is vital. By supporting the growth of Ridley’s endowment, you can increase tuition assistance and enable us to attract the best and brightest — regardless of financial means.

Headmaster’s Fund

Having the flexibility to address emerging priorities is critical for any institution, and your generous support of this fund will allow Ridley’s leadership team to respond to the emerging needs of the school quickly. When you give to the Headmaster’s Fund, your contribution will be strategically allocated to Ridley’s highest priority needs not covered by tuition — resulting in a stronger and more innovative school.

Flourish Fund

You can invest in our school’s mission to provide a student-centred learning environment that enhances our educational programmes and helps keep our campus looking beautiful and up to date with the latest technologies while advancing our aspirational vision of inspiring flourishing lives to transform our globe. Gifts to the Flourish Fund this year will support the following projects:

  • A new student wellness partnership with Dr. Greg Wells
  • New outdoor teaching and learning spaces
  • Exercise equipment for the new Fitness Centre
  • Technology and equipment for the new Creative Commons

Other: Your Passion

From athletics to the arts and everything in between, many areas of the school hold a special meaning for each member of the Ridley community. By making a gift to an area of the school that you are passionate about, you not only support the Ridleian Fund but create a positive difference in an area of the school that is most meaningful for you.
