There is something truly special about giving to Ravenswood School. In giving to Ravenswood, you are not only contributing to the legacy of the parents, students, Alumni and friends who have given for over a century; you are continuing the Ravenswood tradition of philanthropy well into the future.
Generous donations continue to make a profound difference in the area of scholarships at Ravenswood. Through the Ravenswood School for Girls Scholarship Fund, we have been able to provide life-changing scholarships and bursaries to students who otherwise may not be able to afford a Ravenswood education.
Contributions to the Ravenswood School for Girls Scholarship Fund directly contribute to empowering bright minds, fostering inclusivity, and promoting educational equity. These scholarships open doors for students who exhibit academic excellence, leadership potential, and a commitment to making a positive impact on the world.
Valuable contributions towards the Ravenswood Building Fund have played a significant role in enhancing the educational experience for present and future generations of students by enabling the development of state-of-the-art facilities. These include the Centenary Centre, the Gillian Mapp Memorial Pool, the Strength and Conditioning Centre, the Petre Innovation Centre, and more recently the award-winning Mabel Fidler Building and Senior Learning Centre.
These outstanding facilities provide our students with an environment that fosters creativity, innovation, and academic excellence, empowering students to thrive and reach their full potential. This year, thanks to the generosity of the Ravenswood community received during Giving Day 2021, Ravenswood opened a new Wellbeing Path. The 800-metre path winds around the inside perimeter of the School campus, promoting increased physical activity, mindfulness and wellbeing through reflective moments, idyllic garden beds, inspirational quotes and sustainable pictogram art installations.
In June 2023, on Love RAVO Day, Ravenswood hosted its second-ever 24-hour Giving Day appeal, raising funds for life-changing student scholarships and bursaries, and for the construction of Ravenswood’s new Wellbeing and Sport Centre. The Ravenswood community demonstrated their deep commitment to the transformative power of education and helping others by raising an extraordinary $637,000. Twenty-two matcher donors generously doubled every dollar donated by the 310 Giving Day donors.
Bequests: Become a Fidler Fellow
