Giving

Like many independent schools, Edge depends on the support of the entire community – tuition and government funding alone do not support the ongoing needs of the school. Donations make the Edge School what it is today by strengthening our academics and athletics, enhancing facilities, and making it possible for student-athletes to attend Edge who may not have had the opportunity otherwise to do so.

The Edge School community is caring, involved and generous. We are deeply grateful for the many gifts provided to ensure every student-athlete at Edge has an exceptional academic and athletic experience in support of our funding priorities.

Together we can create world-leading learning and development experiences for student-athletes.

Together we can inspire student achievement and reward success through student awards.

Together we can demonstrate community leadership by enriching our student experiences and facilities.

 

“Had it not been for the assistance we received, our daughter would not have been able to participate in this incredible opportunity. She is looking forward to developing new skills and growing as a student athlete.”

- parents of Edge School Foundation Opportunity Award recipient 2019
