Giving Tuesday at Rundle
Published on December 2, 2021
Thank you Rundle! Together, this Giving Tuesday we raised over $55,000 in support of our Rundle students and programs. We are so thankful for you, our generous donors for helping us achieve our most successful #RundleGives event to date.
We are so proud of this year’s graduating class who raised over $6,200 for the Academy and College student Bursary Fund with 80% of our grade 12s donating to Project 20.22 on #GivingTuesday.
Thank you all! It was truly amazing to see this inspiring level of support from our community as well as the engagement and philanthropic spirit of our grade 12 students.
We are sincerely grateful for the incredible community that you have helped build and your support of our students and programs. To learn more about how your donation is making a difference, please visit Giving at Rundle.

What is Giving Tuesday?
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is the “opening day” of the giving season, when charities, companies and individuals join together to support their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
Fuel the economy on Friday and Monday, fuel your heart on Tuesday.
Rundle Gives on Giving Tuesday
Since 2016, Rundle has participated in Giving Tuesday to support the annual needs of our students and programs through our Visions & Values campaign. Rundle’s involvement in the day was inspired by the graduating Class of 2015 whose graduation gift was to grow Rundle’s Bursary Fund. It was their goal to create a sustainable fund that would provide tuition assistance for current Rundle students whose family has encountered a difficult financial situation and do not have the financial means to continue their education at Rundle. The graduates committed to giving a minimum gift of $20.15 for the next 5 years or a lump sum payment of $100.75. This tradition has continued with following graduating classes. Since 20.15, our graduating classes from both campuses, along with their and other Rundle families, have raised over $235,000 towards the Bursary Fund.
Project 20.15 has been more than just a student initiative. Since 2015, other Rundle community members including teachers, parents and alumni, have contributed to this campaign, which has become known as Rundle Gives on Giving Tuesday.
Starting November 30, we invite you to join Rundle Gives on Giving Tuesday and make a tax-deductible donation to support ANY of our programs that you inspire you. For more information or to make a donation to Rundle, please visit our website.
We also invite you to become a Friend of Rundle Monthly Donor and make a small monthly pledge of $15 pledge in support of our school. Together, we are stronger!
