RJR Legacy Campaign 2020-2021
Thanks to the loyalty of past donors and a growing number of new contributors, the Legacy Campaign continues to raise an average of $100,000 each year in direct support of our students and faculty in pursuit of excellence. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference as we take great pride in the participation of everyone in our school community.
What is the Legacy Campaign?
An all-inclusive annual fundraiser that supports academics, arts and athletics. The campaign gives parents, faculty, alumni, community partners and students the opportunity to provide financial support critical to the continued success of programs at Reynolds.
What does the Legacy Campaign support?
Thirty percent of the funds go directly to the Booster Club to help fund the athletic needs of the school. The remaining funds are given as a gift to the school to address academics and arts requests from faculty and staff. Technology continues to be a top priority at Reynolds, whether it be updating or purchasing new computers or charging carts. Thoughtful input and recommendations are provided by our School Improvement Team (SIT).

Note: If you donated by check or PayPal and gave at a level that includes Sports Passes and/or Event Passes, please contact Stephanie Kennedy at RJRLegacy@gmail.com to receive a promocode that can be used on the GoFan website to get your passes sent to your mobile device. Donating by using option 2/GoFan as opposed to check or Paypal is a MUCH quicker way to get Sports Passes and/or Event Passes than waiting for a promocode.
