The Americas Fund

Last year The Ratcliffe College Foundation received over $40,000 from alumni and supporters in the Americas and this money makes a significant difference to the lives of the young people here at Ratcliffe.

The launch of the new AMERICAS FUND will allow us to recognise collectively, the very generous support we receive from our alumni across the pond in The Americas.

Recent Supporters of the Americas Fund include:

  • Peter Daley (’56)
  • Eugene McCarthy (’61)
  • Frank Lum (’65)
  • Eric Ciambra (’79)
  • Noel Sloan (’79)

With more alumni pledging regular donations and adding their name to this list each year, we hope that over the next few years we can grow the amount donated, with the aim of The Americas Fund reaching $100,000 annually by 2020.

Please help us transform lives by supporting the Ratcliffe SIXTH FORM BURSARY APPEAL.
