RHS Community Donates $335,000 for Rock Giving Tuesday
On Nov. 10, Rockhurst held its annual Rock Giving Tuesday Campaign - a day of giving to financial assistance.
Nearly 50% of all Rockhurst families rely on the $2.7 million in assistance that the school is able to offer in 2020-21. This would not be possible without the support ofalumni, family, and friends of Rockhurst.
Rock Giving Tuesday had an initial goal of $190,000, thanks to a $95,000 Match Challenge by a group of donors. That figure was surpassed by mid-afternoon, and a new $30,000 Match Challenge was announced. Our benefactors stepped up again and that total of $250,000 was surpassed by late-afternoon.
By the end of the day, more than $310,000 had been raised to provide financial assistance, helping close the annual $5 million gap between earned revenues and annual operating costs! That number reached $335,000 by the end of the campaign.
