Support the Randolph Education Fund

The Randolph post-secondary arts program has maintained full-time operation since its inception in 1992. Rather than relying on government investment like public universities and colleges, the Randolph program relies primarily on tuition fees, private donor support, and a personal financial commitment by George and Lauren Randolph.

Public university/college tuition fees have risen across Canada; some students now pay 40% more in tuition than they did 10 years ago. In comparison, Randolph students now pay only 3% more in tuition than they did a decade ago.

But even as tuition has remained at a reasonable rate, the cost of sustaining the integrity and quality of the Randolph program has risen. Tuition currently accounts for only 65% of program costs. Thus the Randolph Education Fund was established in 2017 to enable the program to:

1) guarantee an affordable tuition rate for talented students

2) maintain a competitive salary for professional faculty.

Giving Priorities

  • Scholarships and Bursaries — we aim to train the best of the best and we don’t want to turn away an aspiring talent for financial reasons. Scholarship and bursary donations will help us offset a greater portion of our college students’ tuition and fees.
  • Adequate Compensation for Faculty — we want to continue to offer our teachers wages that are fair and competitive in the industry, in order to attract the best the industry has to offer for our students.
  • Production sponsorships — college students in their final year of training participate in a play production and a fully staged musical. All of this work is to prepare them for the “real world” and these productions are as close to the real thing as we can get. Professional productions take money to produce and your help in sponsoring costumes, sets, or one or more actors is an invaluable contribution.
  • Marketing — our best marketing is the word-of-mouth recommendation of our alumni. However, we can let more aspiring performers know about us if we can market our programs to Canada and the world. Your help will help us create more future stars.
