What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement for charitable giving! Brother Rice is excited to participate and raise funds in support of the Crusader Fund.

This year’s theme is “GIVE BACK. GIVE THANKS.” in which we celebrate the Four Cornerstones of a Brother Rice education; Academics, Involvement, Spirituality, and Family. These Four Cornerstones focus on how we grow together as a community. Our goal at Brother Rice is to develop the whole person and have our students leave as well rounded young men.


What is the Crusader Fund?

The Crusader Fund sustains excellence in our classrooms and represents an investment in our students and outstanding faculty who believe in the value of a Catholic faith-based education. The Crusader Fund ensures that our campus facilities are properly maintained, technology is current and tuition assistance is available to our families in need.
