As with all state-funded schools, the financial situation for RGS is very challenging. The annual cost to run the rugby programme at RGS is approximately £60,000. This is met through a number of initiatives to generate additional revenue. About 95% is raised through subs, sponsorships, fund raising events, including the Sportsman's Dinner, Burns Night, Beer & Gin Festival and Comedy Night.
This is raised from the generosity of parents, individual donors who support the School through attendance at events and donations to the Friends of Rugby. Whilst funds are raised to ensure the School meets its annual financial commitments we are very proud to say that we were able to invest in the Gym project in 2019.
We are incredibly grateful for gifts of all sizes and you can make your gift as a single payment or in instalments. Please don’t forget to complete the Gift Aid declaration to increase your gift by 25p for every £1 you give.
Thank you for your support.
Many thanks to all of those who donate subscriptions to the rugby section at RGS. Annual subs are the second biggest revenue stream for FRoRGS after the Sportsman's Dinner and are essential to the rugby programme.
