Annual Fund

River's Annual Fund Campaign is our most important fundraising effort. Each year, we ask every member of our community to make a gift to the Annual Fund.

Your gift helps fund field trips, the spring performance, classroom supplies and theme materials, faculty salaries, and professional development. Over 90% of parents support the Annual Fund each year and are joined by grandparents, alumni families and friends.

The Annual Fund is a line item in our operating budget and is critical to bridging the difference between what tuition covers and the cost of a River School education.
