We are excited to share the launch of the 2022-2023 True Blue campaign in support of Appleby College.
What is True Blue and why is it important that you participate in this year’s campaign? True Blue is the essence of who we are as a community. It is the perseverance and resilience to overcome adversity. It is the character and commitment to have a positive impact on the lives of others. It is the courage and determination to do what’s right no matter the obstacles. True Blue is what makes being a part of the Appleby community so special.
Donations to the Appleby Fund allow the school to continue to offer an exceptional educational experience for students. We appreciate that attending Appleby is a major financial commitment for our families. We also recognize that with our beautiful campus, incredible facilities and engaging programing, we do not appear to be a school that requires additional financial support particularly when there are so many other areas of need within the community.
As a not-for-profit, we fund our programmes through a mix of tuition fees, commercial activities, grants from the Appleby College Foundation and philanthropic gifts. And while tuition fees allow us to provide the core elements of the Appleby experience, it is through philanthropic gifts to the True Blue campaign that allow us to enhance and grow initiatives such as Financial Assistance, Global Education, Wellness, and Robotics.
Please help us to continue to make the experience for students exceptional by participating in this year’s True Blue campaign. Your gift will further enrich the Appleby community and have an immediate impact.
Financial Assistance Programme – Appleby believes that financial need should not prevent great students from receiving an outstanding education that will help them reach their full potential. Over 90 per cent of Appleby’s financial assistance is provided through bursaries. The remainder are loans and scholarships. Approximately 20 per cent of Appleby families receive financial assistance annually and Appleby’s Board of Governors endorses a strategy that will increase the percentage of students receiving financial assistance to 25 per cent. This year, your support will help continue to grow the number of families receiving financial assistance as we strive to achieve our goal of 25 per cent.
Areas of Greatest Need - Your gift directed towards the areas of greatest need allows us to ensure the most urgent needs for our students’ benefit are met. Your gift provides opportunities and resources for our students to learn, express themselves, and improve self-confidence. Support to the Areas of Greatest needs has an immediate and significant impact on the everyday life of the school.
