Both campuses of Runnels School will be CLOSED tomorrow, April 18 due to forecasts of enhanced risks of severe weather in the Baton Rouge area. All activities and field trips scheduled for tomorrow have been postponed. With safety as our primary concern, we are closing out of an abundance of caution. We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.

Ways to Give

Annual Giving

The Runnels Annual Giving Campaign helps fill the gap between the tuition and the actual cost of providing the high quality education that students receive at Runnels. Previous campaigns have funded classroom Smartboards, professional development, playground equipment, campus security and much more. See more on Annual Giving

Matching Gifts

Does your company have a Matching Gift Program? Many nonprofits miss out on revenue simply because donors are unaware of their employers’ matching gift programs. If you are employed by a large or national corporation take a moment to review their programs and see if your donation qualifies. Many corporations match financial donations as well as volunteer time.

Some area companies leading the way with corporate philanthropy are Coca-Cola, Entergy, IBM, ExxonMobil, Shell, and BASF.
