Over the course of a year, every educational institution faces challenges and opportunities that require access to unrestricted, current-use resources. For The Rivers School, those resources are provided by The Rivers Fund.
Today, nearly 10% of the annual operating budget for Rivers is underwritten by donations to The Rivers Fund. Having a robust annual fund lets Rivers navigate market downturns, develop innovative educational programs, and provide all students with equal access to crucial learning opportunities.
The Fund also helps the school keep tuition at manageable levels, while sustaining the excellence of school programs year after year. It impacts almost every aspect of the school experience. It supports interdisciplinary studies and innovative courses and programs like robotics, the freight farm, and Sages and Seekers. It funds the purchase of athletic uniforms, costumes for theater productions, and library research tools. It supports music concerts and the nutritious lunches prepared every day for our students.
Every gift counts
Every gift to The Rivers Fund is important. Last year, more than 1,960 individuals in the Rivers community supported our annual giving program with gifts ranging from $5 to $100,000. Nearly 83% of those donors gave gifts under $1,000, adding an impressive $145,000 to the total raised for the 2018-19 Rivers Fund.
This year our goal is to raise $3.0 million for The Rivers Fund, while increasing the alumni participation rate to 35% and increasing the parent participation rate to 87%.
