Each year, the Edge School community comes together to take part in Move Mountains, our largest annual fundraiser! On Wednesday, April 27 Edge Mountain Teams – Everest, Kilimanjaro, Logan, and Makalu – will compete for the largest number of donations, earning a point for every donation made and the total dollars raised.
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 $406,000 to Move Mountains. These funds have been invested in many different ways around the school:
-Updating the Learning Commons (2017)
-Purchasing new equipment, and athlete assessment and movement velocity devices to advance training in the Duckett Performance Centre (2018)
-Purchasing new water bottle filling stations (2019)
-Updating classroom technology (2019)
-Supporting financial assistance (2017-2021)
-Change room upgrades (2021)
-Sound system improvements in the main office, gym, and DPC (2021)
We are excited to announce that 2022 Move Mountains funds will be allocated towards our financial aid program and the purchase of one, 10+ passenger van!
Each year, matching donors support Move Mountains to get us halfway to our goal. Interested in coming on as a Move Mountains matching donor, or want to learn more? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
