Support River


The River School is a community of givers—parents, alumni parents, trustees, grandparent and friends who give their time, energy and resources to help The River School provide extraordinary experiences to children every day.

It is this generous spirit that energizes our faculty and staff, and community leaders and makes possible the core features of our program:

  • Masters level educators and speech pathologists in every classroom;
  • An unparalleled 5:1 student teacher ratio and small class sizes; and,
  • Innovative, research-based teaching practices.

We are grateful for EVERY contribution—regardless of amount. Your support is a testimony to your belief in our work and in this foundational time in your child’s life.

You can choose to support The River School in a number of ways. Donations to River Fund, the Endowment, Scholarship Auction, or to a specific program area, are all critical to helping us fulfill our mission and prepare young children to find their voice and thrive.

Gifts of time, talent and wisdom are also invaluable to The River School’s success! We work with many volunteers who donate countless hours to making every day special for the children here.

Our strong community is at the heart of The River School—so we hope you will join us in the way that suits and is most meaningful to you!
With appreciation,

Jennifer Lynch
Director of Institutional Advancement
