Move Mountains

The Edge School Annual Giving Day

Each year, the Edge School community comes together to take part in Move Mountains, our largest annual fundraiser! On Tuesday, March 16th Edge Mountain Teams – Everest, Kilimanjaro, Logan, and Makalu – competed for the largest number of donations, earning a point for every donation made and total dollars raised.

Thank you to over 130 Edge community members who generously donated over $78,300 during Move Mountains 2021!

A special thanks to our matching donors, the Charron family, the Kyle Stuart Memorial Foundation, and an anonymous donor from the Edge community for matching the first $37,500 donated!

Move Mountains is a day that celebrates the Edge Mountaineer culture of community and care for others. Donations are credited to each Mountain Team and directed to the Edge School Foundation Financial Aid and Equipment & Facilities Funds.

Since 2017, the Edge community has generously donated over $329,000 to Move Mountains. These funds have been invested in updating the Learning Commons, purchasing new water bottle filling stations, classroom technology, plus new training equipment, and athlete assessment and movement velocity devices to advance training in the Duckett Performance Centre. Contributions in 2021 will go towards financial assistance, as well as upgrading our aging change rooms and improving our sound systems in the main office, gym, and DPC – equipment that allows us to communicate every day and ensure student safety during emergencies.

Matching Donations

Each year, matching donors support Move Mountains to get us halfway to our goal. Please contact Dana Silver at dsilver@edgeschool.com to learn more about Move Mountains matching donations.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Did you know that you may be eligible to double or triple your donation to the Edge School at no additional cost? Corporate matching gifts allow you to do just that! If your employer offers a matching gift program, your company will match donations that you make to charitable organizations like the Edge School Foundation. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Donations to Move Mountains can be made to the 'Edge School Foundation' using the Benevity or United Way donation platform connected to your workplace giving program.

Thank you for helping us Move Mountains for Edge student-athletes!
