Giving Day

On 5 & 6 September 2023, College launched their inaugural Giving Day where our community came together and raised R1.3 million rand in 27 hours!

What is Giving Day?

For over a decade now, no fund raising has taken place at any Old Boys function which has been an active decision taken by Old Boys. That said, we need our passionate Old Boys and College Community to invest into “Our College” we hold so dear, as many did with the fund raising in 2022 for the: Philip Nel Pavilion, World class 1st Aid Facility (that secured us the very successful junior Craven week we hosted in 2023) and a massive build out of the Kent Pavilion change rooms. What a wonderful addition all this is to Goldstones and a fitting tribute to our legendary Springbok captain, Philip Nel, who was Head Prefect and captain of the rugby First XV in 1921.

Giving Day is a new concept for College and instead of asking Old Boys and “Friends of College” to donate at events throughout the year, we are:

  • asking for 24hrs only
  • making it global
  • making it FUN
  • embracing digital, in this fund raising
  • allowing our Donors to pick and support a campaign you want to support

The event was a great success and we received donations from the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, even Mauritius! Please click here to read more about this exciting event.


We are looking forward to having our next Giving day in August this year where we hope to exceed last year’s amount raised.  More details will follow!
