Nick Viall can't stop gushing about his girl, Vanessa Grimaldi.

The 36-year-old Bachelor star took to Instagram on Sunday to brag about his fiancee raising over $30,000 during her first fundraising event for her charity, No Better You, which seeks to "advance education by providing specialized tools and programs for exceptional learners."

"Couldn't be more proud of my girl @vanessagrimaldi30 for raising over 30k in her first fundraising event for @nobetteryou," Viall captioned a photo of himself at the event with Grimaldi. "Congrats babe!! #happy #proud #charity"

Grimaldi was also thrilled to announce the success of the fundraiser, and shared another photo of herself and Viall from the benefit. "The first @nobetteryou fundraiser was a great success! With over 30k raised, we are looking into opening sensory rooms in 2-3 schools!!" she wrote. "Thank you to everyone that came, those who donated online, to all my volunteers and to @ardene for believing and supporting the cause! #grateful #wedidit"

This isn't the first time Viall has given his fiancee a shout-out for her philanthropy. In June, he posted a selfie wearing a No Better You T-shirt alongside his bride-to-be. "Couldn't be more proud of my girl for using her platform for such a great cause and starting the @nobetteryou foundation," he wrote. "Benefiting special education programs."

Viall's support of Grimaldi comes after rumors that the couple -- who got engaged on last season of The Bachelor -- was on the verge of a breakup. However, a source told ET that the two are "still very much together," adding that there "are ups and downs with every relationship."
