FINAL UPDATE: WE DID IT! Thank you for exceeding the goals for Giving Day. We had 2,048 donors and raised more than $280,000. Every challenge was met and unlocked more than $100,000 in essential funding for today's students. Thank you for helping us make an extraordinary impact.

UPDATE: Rollins community, you are incredible. Because of you, an additional $10,000 gift has been unlocked for the Rollins Annual Fund, bringing us to $60,000 total. Now, Anthony E. DiResta '77 has offered ANOTHER $10,000 gift if we're able to reach 1,600 total donors today! Let's keep this momentum going and create an impact that lasts longer than just 24 hours.

UPDATE: Our first challenge goal has already been exceeded by 9 a.m. and $50,000 has been unlocked for the Rollins Annual Fund. Thank you to everyone who has participated so far, we couldn’t have done it without you! The Alumni Association Board of Directors was so inspired by you that they offered an additional $10,000 gift if we reach 1,200 total donors.

Reason #10 to Give on Rollins Giving Day


10. You’ll empower Hamilton Holt School students like Shannon Burrows ’19 to realize lifelong dreams. 


Growing up in Orlando, Burrows says she considered Rollins “the unattainable pot of gold at the end of the Park Avenue rainbow.” She never dreamed she’d be able to attend—let alone as a 40-something mother of two. Burrows thrived as a nontraditional student majoring in psychology, co-founded a collaborative online writing studio, and graduated at the top of her class as the 2019 Outstanding Graduating Senior.
