Ways to Be A River Giver
We are grateful of all gifts of support to The River School. Give online, or make a gift by cash, check, stock. Questions? Contact the Development Office.
- Give to the Annual Fund. We ask each member of our community to make this their first gift to the school each year. Gifts to the Annual Fund help make up the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a River education. It funds everything form faculty salaries, classroom supplies, books and special activities.
- Support the Scholarship Auction: There are many ways you can support this community-building fund-raiser—donate, be a sponsor, purchase an ad, bid on items or buy a raffle ticket.
- Find out if your employer has a Charitable Gift Matching Program or other Community Giving Program such as Charity of the Month. Matching Gifts are an effective way to double your impact and your assistance with corporate support is invaluable.
- Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are a wise way to maximize tax savings in a given year and create an invested fund for charitable giving that you can distribute over time. You can make a gift to River though a DAF at anytime and for any purpose.
- Donate to a specific program: If you have a specific area of interest such as professional development, technology, science, maker space, arts or scholarship, you can make a directed gift to one of these areas.
