Message from the President

Hello, I am a third-generation Rugbeian who has been living in the Bay Area, north of San Francisco, since 1994 (I love snowboarding and fishing, although golf is a lost cause). The American Friends are restarting our in-person events this year. Come along to reconnect with old friends and meet new faces. Please join us, it is a great group.

Please feel free to contact me by email

Whole Person Campaign

The Rugbeian Community of North America has for many years focused its fundraising efforts on supporting boarding scholarships for Arnold Foundation students. Now the Community is taking that support further and are launching the Arnold Foundation Whole Person Fund.

We know from our personal experience that attending Rugby is about so much more than just an academic endeavor. The School’s motto of “Whole Person Whole Point” speaks directly to the mission conceived by Thomas Arnold in the 1800’s to introduce fully rounded and highly capable young people into the world. 

To that end over the next three years the goal of the Rugbeian Community of North America Arnold Foundation Whole Person Fund is to raise sufficient income from donations to fund extra-curricular activities that are particularly important to Arnold Foundation students as individuals. 

This is all about enriching and deepening the impact of the Arnold Foundation program - to benefit the individual Foundation students, and through increasing their involvement and inclusion in the broader school community, identifying special talent and honing skills that will equip them to participate in a wide range of activities long after they leave the School.
