Giving Day: March Forth With Us
On March 4, 2021, Roxbury Latin hosted its third annual Giving Day—24 hours in which we asked alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends to express their love for and belief in RL by making a donation, of any amount. We dedicating this year’s Giving Day to our talented and dedicated faculty who continue to go above and beyond to advance RL’s mission.
Thank you for helping to make the day a resounding success. With your help, we raised more than $568,000 for the Annual Fund—including $75,000 in challenge money from generous alumni and parents—with 1,287 gifts, in 24 hours. Every dollar raised on Giving Day will go directly toward supporting our faculty. Your generous support—in dollars and in words of love for teachers, advisors, coaches, mentors—went above and beyond our expectations for the day. Your gifts will preserve the school’s core values, while ensuring that students are equipped to lead and serve, taught by a talented, passionate, and dedicated faculty, who are committed to the boys in their care.
For your excitement, for your generosity—for your love of, and belief in, this school—we are deeply grateful. On this year’s Exelauno Day, thank you for marching forth with us.
