The Annual Fund is Rivermont’s annual giving program that provides the essential unrestricted dollars that enhance the Rivermont Experience. Like most independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of running a school like Rivermont. Annual Fund contributions enrich every area of student life and ensure Rivermont continues to deliver a well-rounded education complete with unique opportunities, programs, and experiences.
We encourage all members of the Rivermont Community to support the Annual Fund at the level that suits them – parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends of the School. Because contributions are used during the school year in which they are given, every contribution makes a difference that can be seen and felt on campus each year as we grow.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Annual Fund?
Annual Fund gifts support many areas of student life, including technology, fine arts, foreign language instruction, athletics, student trips, scholarships and tuition assistance, faculty professional development, and general operating needs. These unrestricted gifts enable Rivermont to spend the dollars wherever it is most necessary. Tuition and fees do not cover the cost of providing a world-class Rivermont education. The Annual Fund helps bridge the gap ensuring our programs remain unique and innovative.
