Frequently asked questions about The Rivers Fund:
What does this fund support?
The Rivers Fund makes up just over 10 percent of our yearly operating budget. It helps us attract and retain the very best faculty, provide robust professional development, enhance our classrooms, improve our equipment, invest in technological innovation, and support financial aid. While unrestricted donations give us the latitude to invest in areas where the need is greatest, gifts can also be earmarked to support specific programs such as RSC, auxiliary financial aid, or athletics (just to name a few!).
Why is participation important to The Rivers Fund?
High participation rates demonstrate our community’s confidence in and commitment to Rivers. We believe that increased participation rates among our alumni and current parents also send a powerful message to prospective parents, letting them know that the community fully supports our mission and stands together.
How much should I give?
We ask that you make your best gift—a gift at a level that is meaningful to you. We invite current families, alumni, and friends to make Rivers their top philanthropic priority, while recognizing that the “correct” amount is different for each person. We celebrate all levels of participation in The Rivers Fund. Your gift helps build the school’s future and ensure a bright tomorrow for every student.
