As alumni leaders, the Board of Governors, Ridley College Foundation and Ridley College Fund USA Inc., remain committed to serving school leadership, students, families, and staff as they navigate the challenges which accompany this crisis. In response to growing concerns, and in order to retain current and incoming students, we have initiated the COVID-19 Relief Fund. This fund will support temporary financial assistance for incoming and returning students for the upcoming school year (2020/21) in order to retain students who would not normally require assistance. These additional tuition assistance needs of our current students are beyond our present capacity.  This fund will help Ridley to support enrolment and maintain our position as one of the top independent schools in the country.


As we receive reminders of the care and compassion with which Ridleians are serving others during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we continue to inspire the flourishing lives which transform our globe.


Gifts to this fund will now have double the impact, thanks to a generous match of $250,000 from the Ridley College Foundation and Ridley College Fund USA Inc. This means, for example, that your donation of $100 will become $200 of new money to the school, $250 will become $500, and so forth. Several unsolicited gifts have already been received from generous alumni and parents in recent weeks, which have helped to seed this fund.
