Why Support RE?


Ransom Everglades is one of the finest and most distinctive independent day schools in the country because of a strong tradition of generous support from alumni/ae, parents, grandparents, and friends. Gifts from our extended RE family support the Ransom Everglades of today while ensuring the school’s place in the world and leaving a lasting legacy for future generations. This generosity directly influences the quality of education – in and out of the classroom – at Ransom Everglades and provides the margin of excellence that makes today's RE experience so special. Gifts to Ransom Everglades also empower us to attract and retain outstanding faculty and students to create a vibrant learning community and offer first-rate facilities.

The motivations for supporting Ransom Everglades are as many and as varied as RE donors themselves:

  • A Ransom Everglades teacher has had a lasting impact on your or your child’s life, and you want to ensure that all students can benefit from such remarkable faculty.
  • You appreciate the extracurricular opportunities that RE offers - in athletics, arts, community service, on Biscayne Bay, and in Miami - and want to strengthen those experiences for others.
  • You believe a Ransom Everglades education and lifelong friendships forged at the school should be accessible to qualified students whose financial resources make attendance beyond their reach.

Our donors give to Ransom Everglades because they believe in its mission and understand that it is a special place to educate children. We strive for 100% participation from our community in our campaigns. A united effort sends a powerful message within and outside of our institution. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference to today’s RE students and faculty. And each gift is a vote of confidence in RE’s future.
